Lisa Rose is a mid sized, dense, bushy, evergreen shrub with dark green leaves. The flower buds form in early autumn, turning deep brick-red as the temperature drops. The small, pink and white flowers open in rounded clusters from mid-winter to mid-spring, followed by dark blue-black berries that develop later in the year adding further interest. Its growth habit makes it perfect for adding a little height to mixed shrub beds. It also makes an excellent, evergreen and manageable hedge. Shorter than its parent, topping out at approx 2.4m.
