This large shrub, eventually growing into a small shapely tree, is widely distributed in the wild and planted on a large scale in seaside areas as windbreaks and screens. It is naturally adapted to light dry sandy soils, but will tolerate a wider range of conditions, including very exposed windy sites. The male and female flowers are borne on different plants, and several need planting in a group to be sure of a prolific display of the golden orange berries which crowd the stems in autumn, revealed when the silvery grey-green foliage falls. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
