This handsome, dense evergreen shrub with creamy leaf variegation makes an outstanding foundation plant, hedge, screen, landscape accent, or large container specimen. Tightly-branched growth habit is well-suited for shaping into formal topiary forms. Tolerates poor soils, heat, and salt spray.

Easy to grow in average, well-drained soils. Best with full sun in humid climates and afternoon shade in extremely hot climates. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed before new growth begins in spring. Prune regularly to maintain shape as a topiary.
