|Design Ideas||Plant on a gentle slope to show off the beautiful silvery undersides of the leaves as they flutter in the slightest breeze. A magnificent, refined shrub or small tree is stunning when featured along with shrubs and trees with deeper green foliage. Most attractive in its natural form, making it well suited as a specimen, massing on hillsides, or as an informal, unclipped screen or hedge.|

|Care||Prefers humus rich, well-drained soils, but highly adaptable. Water deeply, regularly during the first few growing seasons to develop an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Prune lightly as needed to shape after flowering.|
|Lore||The very first export from South America as an excellent source of ascorbic acid, considered to be the first cure for scurvy.|
