Pernettya is a small shrub that produces massive amounts of glistening berries.

The pernettya bush is a broadleaf evergreen with small, shiny leaves of the deepest green. In some regions, the pernettya’s leaves turn brown or bronze in winter. The plant grows to between 2 and 5 (.6-1.5 m.) feet tall, depending on site and cultivar. Pernettya’s bell-shaped flowers appear in late spring, usually in white or red. But it is the berries that sell this bush to gardeners, with a wealth of large, shining berries that hang on the shrub all winter and into spring. These berries can be red, pink, white or lilac, depending on the cultivar. Often when new flowers appear in May, berries from the prior year still decorate the shrub.

A pernettya bush is not difficult to grow. The rules for pernettya plant care are similar to those for blueberries. They do best in full or part sun in peaty, acidic soil, so mix peat moss or organic compost into the soil before planting. Feed with a fertilizer for rhododendrons in late February and early June.
