Margyricarpus Setosus evergreens

Margyricarpus Setosus evergreensMargyricarpus Setosus, also known as Bristly Pearl Fruit, is a charming little evergreen, of procumbent growth, bearing throughout the whole summer a number of berries on the main branches.

Being only half-hardy, Margyricarpus Setosus requires protection from frost, but in the warmer weather it may be planted on rock-work in sandy loam and vegetable mould. Cuttings planted in moist peat under a hand-glass will strike, or it may be propagated by layers. Their height is about six inches.
