This is perhaps one of the most common of garden plants. Very hardy and robust yet striking by virtue of the bold yellow variegation. A very adaptable small evergreen shrub. This plant can be used in a mixed planting as ground cover or a high quality low hedge. The new spring growth is a lighter yellow contrasts with the established foliage and in winter it will often develop an attractive pink tinge. Ideal individually or in mixed pots or containers. If planting in a pot or other container. Use a good quality John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade and become too packed and choke the roots. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 12 - 14 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. John Innes is a soils based compost.
