An excellent, easy-care, evergreen shrub for mass planting as a screen or as a single colorful accent. Spiny foliage emerges with bronze-red coloring, turns green as it matures, and develops a purple-red coloring in the winter. Brilliant yellow flowers in spring are followed by deep blue berries in fall. Plant two or more for best berry production.
