Marlberry is a low-spreading evergreen shrub with dense, glossy green foliage that rapidly spreads by runners making for a good groundcover.  The white or pale pink summer flowers are followed by tiny red drooping cherry-like drupes that ripen to black and persist through winter.   Best grown in average, moist but well-drained acidic soils.
