Companion PlantsThe spreading habit makes this a great groundcover paired with blooming shrubs like Lily of the Valley, Hydrangea, Rhododendron and Mountain Laurel. For an Asian theme, include Japanese Maple, Peony, Azalea, and Asiatic Lily. If trained into a topiary form, include other formal garden standouts like Boxwood, Gardenia and Spiral topiaries.

Provide organically rich, well-drained, acidic soil. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Prune lightly to shape and feed with an acid fertilizer after flowering.
