Gilt Edge Silverberry


These low-maintenance evergreens are fast growing to dense, full, firm, and tough shrubs ideal for screens and also useful as natural espaliers, clipped hedges, or high bank covers. Rich dark green leaves are strikingly variegated with bright golden-yellow margins. Tiny sweetly fragrant silvery flowers in fall are followed by decorative red fruits.
