Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Exceptional selection of the European Butcher's Broom which is an indispensable evergreen deer-proof shrub for shade. The ornamental feature on this are the large red berries which sit squarely on the middle of the "leaves". This is a self-fertile form so it will always bear fruit and it will get to 4' in 10 years.
