The dense evergreen foliage of this low creeping North American shrub make a satisfying carpet of dark green, red tinted and metallic in winter in shades that complement the red berries which nestle among the leaves. The plants are easy to grow, provided the ground is acid and moist at all times, and very hardy in all positions. They make an attractive edging for informal paths and wild garden beds, the creeping and suckering stems easily controlled by chopping through them with a spade once a year. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
