'Autumn Magic' is a great plant for year round interest in the small garden. In spring, plants are covered with attractive clusters of small white blooms, set off perfectly by deep-green waxy foliage. These are followed in summer by black fruits, which last well into winter and are good for attracting wildlife to the garden. In the autumn the foliage turns a smoky-red, before falling. Although it's a slow-growing plant, it suckers profusely to form a spreading shrub. It will grow happily in a range of soils in full sun or partial shade.
