Design Ideas: This large broadleaf foliage shrub is the ideal background plant with a dozen uses. It's primary value is as an informal hedge for spatial definition and to divide front yards. Creates minimal enclosure to outdoor living spaces. Its dark color makes a perfect foundation plant against brick walls to cloak crawl spaces, footings and utilities. Blends beautifully into woodland understory and into back of the flowering shrub border.

Thrives in slightly deep, fertile, moist, humusy, well-drained soil; tolerates poor, sandy, or clay soils. Prefers more sun in cool climates, more shade in warmer areas. Water deeply,regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates dry shade. Feed in early spring. Prune after flowering to shape.

History
