Moderate-growing evergreen shrub to 6-8’ tall x 5-6’ wide. Can be pruned into a small patio tree. This versatile landscape selection is upright-growing in youth, becoming dense and rounded with age, and features attractive, glossy, light-green leaves edged in creamy-white. Lightly-fragrant white flower clusters appear in spring (mostly inconspicuous against its light-colored foliage) though flowering can be highly inconsistent with this variegated variety. Takes well to shearing and is well-suited as an accent, foundation planting, hedge, screen or background, and makes a great color-contrast to deeply-colored shrubs or perennials. Prefers moderate watering in a full to partial sun exposure. Deer resistant.
