Design IdeasThis little beauty is like a shining sapphire in gardens of hardy green dwarf shrubs. Use it a single accent in Asian schemes or for contrast in gardens heavy in cool colors. Adds brightness to dark parts of the yard and makes a nice low hedge against an emerald lawn. However, its real value is as a simple specimen.
