It is an evergreen or semi-evergreen shrub growing to 3 m tall and can produce a beautiful hedge.(12-18 inches apart). The leaves are oval-acute, 2–3.5cm long and 1–1.5 cm broad, shiny green above, pubescent below with dense whitish to yellowish hairs. The flowers are produced in corymbs of 5–15 together, each flower 6–7 mm diameter, with the five petals pink on the outer side, white on the inner side. The fruit is a red pome 6–9 mm diameter; they are eaten by fruit-eating birds, which disperse the seeds in their droppings.

Arrived in good time, very good root systems, ready to go into the ground. I think there must be a way to transport without so much plastic though. Would highly recommend the plants, I expect them to establish quickly.
great hedging plants
good plants with established roots would buy again only downside is the packaging which could be improved not keen on so much plastic wrap
