|Lovely light variegated foliage gives this evergreen shrub a special ability to inject interest into dull landscapes. It is highly versatile and ruggedly drought resistant. Most often applied as a foundation plant along walls, houses and fence lines. Coloring makes a perfect background for deep-green or emerald plants and is neutral enough to accentuate cool-colored perennials. Though it will take shearing as a hedge, it is more attractive if kept to its natural size with selective pruning. Blends exceptionally well into formal, Asian, or contemporary gardens.

|Easy to grow in average, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy appearance, prune annually to shape. May grow larger in optimal growing conditions.
