With its healthy, glossy foliage and large size, it's perfect as a background shrub, hedge or screen. Plant as a specimen to highlight entries or gateways. A good cover for bare walls and spaces between windows. Most charming when trained into a patio tree and planted in large pots stuffed with annual color.
