Hope this is helpful in describing my thoughts on marlberry. Like many "shade-tolerant" plants, it will get leggy and not flower/fruit well if placed in dense shade. Placing marlberry in a landscape properly requires some thought as to what it should be mixed with and where it might receive a bit of sunlight (1-2 hours) during the day."
