A late to mid-season bloomer with large, rounded trusses, each holding a dozen or more clear white bell-shaped flowers with yellow dorsal blotches. The compact, dense form is wider than tall, with an excellent even growth habit. Exhibits good sun tolerance. Outstanding for use as an informal hedge or foundation plant. Evergreen.

Provide organically rich, well-drained, acidic soil. Apply a thick layer of mulch to keep roots cool, avoiding the crown. Avoid harsh afternoon sun exposures and shelter from drying winter winds. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom.
