Spring Frost Coralberry. Ardisia crenata has become naturalized in some parts of the Deep South, and in some places it is called an "invasive," but I think that this is taking it to the extreme. This is a wonderful part sun to shade shrub which will reach only about 3' in the garden, but has the potential for becoming taller. This cultivar is a seed strain where most of the seedlings come true to form, some are even more variegated than the parent. The crenate leaf edges are white, fading to green towards the middle of the leaf. The white to soft pink flowers are not overly showy, and are displayed on multi-branched stems from under the terminal whorl of foliage. These turn into brilliant red berries which persist through the winter and well into the spring. As an outdoor container plant it is great in zone 9 or further south or further north where it can be grown indoors, but in zone 8 it should be in the ground.  As a pot plant, it makes an excellent Christmas decoration inside the home with its brilliant red berries.

Zones 8-11.
