Companion PlantsAs a nice contrast, try the bronzy red new foliage of Teenie GenieTM Miniature Brush Cherry (Eugenia myrtifolia 'Nanum') along with Dwarf False Heather (Cuphea hyssopifolia 'Compacta'), with its rose-purple blooms. To add lightness, try Variegated Miniature Gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides 'Radicans Variegata'), a pretty, small-scale groundcover featuring fragrant white flowers and green foliage with creamy white margins.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
