Design Ideas A single shrub makes a big, bold statement and is better in larger gardens. It is a very reliable accent in larger evergreen landscapes with far-off planting areas. An ideal hedge, it can be sheared or left to grow into a natural form that is dense enough to make a good visual and sound barrier. As tough as they come.
Flower Color White

Companion Plants Juniper (Juniperus); Weigela (Weigela); Potentilla (Potentilla); Spirea (Spiraea); Boxwood (Buxus)
CARE
Care Easy to grow in average, well-drained soils. Best with full sun in humid climates and afternoon shade in extremely hot climates. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Fertilize in early spring. Prune occasionally for a tidy appearance.
