Description: A graceful, low mounding shrub with
glossy medium-sized leaves in a variety of colors
throughout the seasons, creating year-round
interest. Plant in full sun for vibrant foliage color
and best flowering.
Maintenance: For a neat appearance, prune to
shape in late winter or early spring before new
growth begins. Reach inside the plant, cutting
old, stiff or leafless canes at the base, as close to
the ground as possible. Do not shear; shearing
causes canes to die inside the canopy.
