Outstanding selection of a native broadleaf evergreen shrub from the Uncompaghre Plateau. Waxy, urn-shaped, white flowers produce small red berries on established plants. First selected by Betsy Baldwin of Golden, Colorado. Shrub. Xeriscape. Read more here.

Tips from the pros: Does best when planted on slopes with good drainage - consider expanded shale or squeegee when amending clay soil. Seems to prefer shade in the late afternoon. Give it room to grow, even though it's slow to establish.
