Comments: This is a species of ardisia that is used as ground cover. It has interesting variegated foliage and will lighten up a dark area because of the white leaf margins. Cannot tolerate direct sunlight for long periods. Provide a well drained soil and a soil that contains a generous amount of humus so that the stolons can grow horizontially and form new plants that give a uniform covering. Plants set on one foot centers will cover the ground in about two years if growing conditions are favorable.
