|Design Ideas||This is the quintessential foundation broadleaf evergreen shrub for covering vents, utilities and exposed footings. Makes a beautiful backgrounder for perennial beds and breaks up long fence lines with glossy foliage. Lustrous quality is a fine filler for tropical inspired landscapes that need specific look. Trim form is equally at home in semi-formal traditional suburban landscaping.|
|Companion Plants||California Lilac (Ceanothus); Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia); Loroptalum (Loropetalum); Iris (Iris); Shasta Daisy (Chrysanthemum)|
|Care||Grows easily in slightly acidic, fertile, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, prune annually after flowering.|
