Care Instructions

Easy to grow in any but the driest soils and happy in sun or shade, although it will flower best in sunnier sites. Tolerates dry shade once plants are established. Excellent evergreen, weed-suppressing ground cover and the white flowers make it valuable for lightening dark areas.

Plant No: 3090
