Plant details

This is a useful evergreen shrub for winter interest in the open garden or containers. It's a compact variety with dense dark green foliage. 'Spirit' flowers over a long period from late winter to spring. The tiny pink flower buds create an attractive display before they open to star-shaped white flowers, carried in flattened heads. These are followed by small dark blue-black fruits.
