The strongly uprigh habit of this tough and versatile plant makes it ideal for low hedging, while the richly variegated green and cream foliage will offer year round colour. It's also excellent for adding colour and structure to patio pots, and as it tolerates partial shade, it can be used to illuminate areas that may need brightening up.
Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.
- Garden care: Tip prune young plants in mid to late spring to encourage bushy growth and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.
- Harmful if eaten
