Design IdeasAlthough of Asian origin, this highly versatile small shrub blends in well in a variety of themed gardens such as cottage, tropical and Mediterranean. Place in the front of sunny beds and borders in groups of three or more. Excellent choice for late-summer color in compositions featuring lower growing, shrubbier herbs and woody perennials.
