Design IdeasIn milder climates this is one of the most useful low-growing shrubs available. Plant it as a single specimen or in small groups. Short stature makes an ideal foundation planting under windows. With its spreading, dense foliage, it is also a great groundcover or filler beneath tree canopies, or between taller shrubs. Rich green color gives vibrancy to tropical plantings or Asian schemes. Use in a formal garden as edging or short hedges clipped into rigid forms. Also great in planter islands inside circular driveways where it will tolerate the reflected heat.
