This shrub is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new foliage appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow growing
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need protection in winter)

    The new foliage of this adaptable evergreen shrub emerges greenish white, but as it ages it gradually darkens to a deep, rich green. This gives the plant a distinctive bicoloured look, which lasts for a couple of months in spring. This plant will grow just about anywhere. It takes partial shade and dry soils in its stride (once established) and can be used for low hedging or pots. Although this plant is fully hardy the distinctive new flush of foliage could be damaged by a harsh frost.

  • Garden care: Tip prune young plants in mid to late spring to encourage bushy growth and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.
  • Harmful if eaten
