Foliage season:

Our own discovery of a variegated form of this fantastic shrub. New growth emerges bronze with a hint of what is to come. Fully unfurled leaves are edged in yellow. The variegation is EXTREMELY stable on a moderately fast growing evergreen shrub to 6′ x 6′ in 7 years. Best in full sun- the variegation becomes less distinct in shade. In autumn small white flowers crowd the stems. Cold hardy, drought tolerant shrub for virtually any soil that does not have standing water ever.  Slow growing to its ultimate height but then larger. Excellent year round appearance. Specimen, hedge, Very easy to grow and durable shrub that adores our climate. Light water to establish but completely drought adapted then. Also accepts regular summer irrigation. Adaptable.
