Why we love it

Looking for some red to sparkle up your Christmas decor?

  • Perfect to plant now: all our plants are perfect to plant now and we select perennials, so they'll live on year after year
  • For shadier spots: she prefers partial shade or full shade, and also likes her soil to be kept moist
  • Always lookin' good! the great thing about Checkerberry, is that she's got something different to offer in every season!
  • Pop her on a table or the windowsill: she may be small, but she's a great display plant for a table or a windowsill
  • Luscious colours: her small white & pink Spring flowers, turn into little red berries in Summer & Autumn that brighten up any display
