This upright evergreen shrub has small spiny, dark green, holly-like leaves and it is useful to fill a difficult spot in the garden, provided it has space to fill out. Clusters of small orange-yellow flowers appear in mid and late spring, followed by bluish-purple autumn berries. It makes a good informal flowering hedge. Vigorous and easy to grow, it often produces a second flush of flowers in autumn.
