Equally well-suited for a low hedge.|

|Design Ideas||Plant in small groupings in front of taller shrubs. Line several for edging or as mini-hedges to highlight plantings of perennials. Ideal for massing under tree canopies with other understory species. Ideal for small city gardens, courtyards and side yards, where space is a premium. The best plant for middle-front of the shrub border, where it can hide the bare legs of taller shrubs.|

|Care||Provide organically rich, well-drained, acidic soil. Apply a thick layer of mulch to keep roots cool, avoiding the crown. Avoid harsh afternoon sun exposures and shelter from drying winter winds. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom.|
