Rhamnus alaternus 'Argenteovariegata' ('Variegata') is a mediterranean shrub and prefers a sunny, warm, well-drained site. The dramatic creamy margins on the rounded, grayish evergreen leaves make it especially welcome in the winter garden. The flowers come in a flush in early summer but the foliage is so attractive, you scarcely notice them. The later red fruits are very attractive before they age to black.

Early summer.  15 ft. x 12 ft.
