Clusters of insignificant, green flowers appear in May and June among small, lustrous, green leaves with white margins that are pink-tinged in winter. This popular, bushy, variegated, evergreen shrub makes excellent groundcover and is a mainstay of low-maintenance gardens.
Once established it requires little attention except for the occasional removal of damaged, diseased and misplaced shoots in mid-spring. After flowering in mid-summer, lightly cut back shoots to encourage bushy growth. Occasionally, plain green-leaved shoots may grow which should be removed back to their base as soon as they appear.
Can be planted in any well drained soil in full or partial sun, Hardy.
