|Botanical Pronunciation||wy-GEE-la FLOR-ih-duh|
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate growing, low, spreading shrub; reaches 3 ft. tall and wide.|
|Design Ideas||A smaller version of Wine & Roses better fits into small gardens but still deserves high profile locations in foundation planting. Best located on light color walls or use the intense foliage color to mark entries around porch or stoop. Essential to the middle of a shrub border for multi-season interest. Makes a good accent against yellow and lime green foliage plants. Great choice for romantic cottage garden compositions and causal country gardens along picket fences or rails.|
