Additional Information About Marlberry Japanese Ardisia

Japanese Ardisia is a moderate growing shrub, groundcover plant and perennial plant that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 6B through 11. It matures to an average height of 1 inch to 1 foot and an average width of 6 inches to 2 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sun and grows best when planted in loam or silt soil that is well drained. In the fall Japanese Ardisia produces white flowers. The foliage is medium green and dark green in color.

Japanese Ardisia can be useful in the landscape along woodland borders, in mass plantings, under a shade tree, as a groundcover or in landscape beds or islands and also in theme gardens, cottage gardens or shade gardens.


More About Japanese Ardisia / Marlberry...

Ardisia japonica, also known as Marlberry, is a fairly rare, beautiful, evergreen groundcover with 1/2" pink star-shaped flowers in spring followed by abundant red berries in the fall and throughout the winter.  The berries are not particularly preferred by birds unless other food is not readily available. The attractive, glossy, dark green leaves are heavily serrated on the edges and cluster in whorls at the stem tips. Plants spread by underground runners and by seeds, reaching about 10 inches or so in height. 

Ardisia can be grown indoors or out. Outdoors, Ardisia is usually planted as a groundcover in shade gardens or foundation plantings. Indoors it makes a great container plant. 

Ardisia is easy to grow. It is a good choice for areas with shade or morning sun. Plant it in a moist, fertile, well-drained, acid soil. If temperatures drop below 20 degrees F in your area, plant in a protected location.  Few pests or diseases are of major concern.
