This is a wonderful short growing evergreen, which is easily grown in full sun or partial sun in very hot area. It adapts well to containers, and makes a nice topiary or bonsai plant. You can shear and prune the plant heavily, so it is often used for formal hedges. When brushed against the foliage it is lightly sweet. Delicate white flowers in late summer are followed by small black berries in fall and early winter.
Grows to 4 feet tall. Plant in well drained soil.
