Product Description

‘Christmas Cheer’ is a beautiful evergreen small shrub that flowers heavily at the start of spring with beautiful pink ‘Lily of the Valley’ like flowers. The new foliage is coppery-red in colour then hardens off to deep green. The more sun it receives, the more colourful the new growth although the plant prefers morning sun rather than hot afternoon sun. (We grow them successfully in full sun)
‘Christmas Cheer’ likes moist, fertile, acid soil and is frost hardy. It plants well with Azaleas, Camellias, Gardenias etc. and responds well to the same fertiliser.

  • Beautiful flowers
  • Frost hardy
  • Hedging
