Hi everybody,

could you please help me with the the following sentence?

The tiny purplish flowers of the ground-hugging birdbrush on the gentle hills were giving way to the little black berries

I piccoli fiori violacei ..... sulle dolci colline lasciavano spazio ai piccoli frutti di bosco.

The birdbrush might be a kind of flower, but I've got non idea...

Thank you for your help
TS

    Hi Alec,

    thanks for that! Have you got any vague idea of how I can translate in into Italian (even the generic name would be fine). I'm not an expert :(
    and what does ground-hugging means exactly?
    please help!!
    grazie mille davvero.

    L'ho visto per la prima volta in Sardegna che è una meravigliosa isola ricoperta di mirto, corbezzolo e 1000 altre piante arbustive (ground-hugging)... Anche se le sugherelle... Sigh...
