A graceful, finely textured evergreen shrub with a spreading, mounded habit.

Its compact size is ideal for small gardens, low hedges, or borders and can easily be pruned to maintain a smaller size.

Once established, prefers regular moisture but tolerates brief drought. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy appearance, prune annually to shape.
