Useful for foundation planting under very low windows that need vent of footing cover up. Insert into the front of mixed borders for unique form and tidy edges. A fine choice for small urban gardens where close up beauty of this little shrub will be most appreciated. Equally suited for pots and troughs as well as square boxes in modernistic compositions.|

Provide average, acidic, loose, well-drained soil; does not tolerate heavy, wet soils. Thrives in cool coastal areas; shelter from harsh sun exposures in hotter regions. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize in early spring. For a semi-formal appearance, prune annually after flowering.
