Report a problem
This shrub is as durable in the landscape as it is handsome with narrow, creamy yellow margins that set off the small, shiny green leaves on thorny branches. Evergreen, growing rapidly to at least 5 ft tall or so and nearly as wide with a somewhat lax and spreading habit. Autumn flowers are white and intensely fragrant, attracting passersby. Sun or half sun and regular summer water, though tolerant of some summer drought. Frost hardy in USDA zone 7.

This evergreen Japanese Silverberry has narrower foliage than the norm, but has handsome leaves that are rich green edged with cream variegation. It is reported to not be as hardy as the species so it is not for really cold areas. Its winter interest is outstanding in milder areas.
