Suitable for: Ideal for the front of mixed or shrub borders or for low hedging when planted at 50cm (18in) apart in a single line. Good as ground cover and for banks. Full sun to medium shade on all soil types except extremely dry.

Planting: Soak the rootball before planting. Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the rootball or pot. Mix an organic soil improver and general fertiliser with the infill soil. Water regularly until established.
Care: Cut back all previous season's growth by approximately 25% in early Spring to encourage new attractive foliage and bushy habit.
