Description: A dwarf variety of this evergreen shrub with green young stems to only 30-40cm tall bearing broad glossy orbicular dark un-spotted foliage, prominently toothed along their margins. Generally seen as an understorey shrub, where we have seen it forming wide sprawling self-layering colonies in the cold forests of northern Honshu. Producing terminal panicles of purplish flowers in mid spring, followed by sealing-wax red berries by the following winter. Easily grown in light to dark shade in a fertile moisture retentive, but drained soil.
