Design IdeasThis fine-looking shrub should be used as an evergreen contrast to blooming plants. Makes an ideal hedge both natural and sheared. Tall enough to provide dense privacy, and particularly valuable for that in shaded conditions where other screeners won't thrive. Ideal for north side foundation planting and in light challenged sideyards. Well suited to urban or woodland applications.
Companion PlantsOn the shady side of the shrub, White Lilyturf (Liriope muscari 'White') or Silver Dragon Lilyturf (Liriope spicata 'Silver Dragon') make fine low-growing companions with their grassy foliage. For a blooming shrub companion, use the red flowers of Confederate Rose Mallow (Hibiscus mutabilis 'Rubrus'). A foreground planting of TropicannaTM Canna (Canna indica var. 'Phasion') works well set against the evergreen shrub.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, shear to shape in early spring.
