Hardiness level Amber
Forming a dense mound foliage to 100 x 80 cm's over 10 years. It has beautiful grey-green, creamy edged foliage in the summer taking on pink hues in the autumn and becoming deep maroon in the winter after the frosts.
Grow this in a warm garden, and whilst it is happy in partial shade, the best colour develops on plants in full sun. Site out of cold drying winds in moist but well drained soil.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
