Flattened heads of pinkish-white flowers, opening from carmine-pink buds from December to April, followed by dark blue-black fruit. This popular form of laurustinus is denser and more compact than the species. Thriving in sun or shade, the shiny, dark green foliage provides an excellent evergreen backdrop for ornamental and feature plants.
- Garden care: Remove any over-vigorous shoots that threaten the shape of established specimens in early summer, cutting them well back to within the plant's outline.
