This is one of the most versatile and least demanding evergreen shrubs, happy in full sun or fairly deep shade and in dry soils. There are many varieties of this plant, both green and variegated, all worth growing. 'Emerald Gaiety' is a popular coloured form, with irregular white leaf margins and conspicuous pink tints during winter. It makes an excellent specimen shrub, formal hedge and climber on walls. Cut back by one-third the first spring after planting to encourage bushy growth, and remove any plain green reverted stems whenever seen. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Looks good with:Viburnum tinus 'Eve Price'
