Carissa macrocarpa is an evergreen shrub with a dense, bushy habit. It typically grows to a height of 3 to 6 feet (0.9 to 1.8 meters) and spreads to form a rounded or spreading shape. The foliage consists of glossy, dark green leaves that are leathery and oval to lanceolate in shape.

  • Sunlight: Carissa plants thrive in full sunlight to partial shade. Plant them in a location where they will receive at least 4 to 6 hours of direct sunlight per day for optimal growth and flowering.

  • Watering: While Carissa plants are somewhat drought-tolerant once established, they benefit from regular watering, especially during hot, dry periods. Water deeply and infrequently, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot.

  • Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer formulated for flowering shrubs in spring, just before new growth begins. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for application rates, and avoid excessive fertilization, as it can lead to lush foliage growth at the expense of flowers and fruit.

  • Pruning: Prune Carissa plants in late winter or early spring to remove dead, damaged, or overgrown branches and to maintain a compact, tidy shape. You can also prune to promote branching and encourage more flowers and fruit production.
