If you're looking for a pretty, easy-to-grow, mid-size shrub, this is it. Plant it anywhere - full sun to full shade - and it will thrive. Forget to water it - it will forgive you. These shrubs grow in a mounded shape and make wonderful accent plants, privacy plants or hedges. They're also useful in hiding the "unmentionables"...like the air-conditioner or those funky above-ground drainage pipes that can spoil the look of a front yard.
