Dan Hinkley selected this Chilean evergreen shrub or small tree for its excellent, more refined form and handsome silvery white reverse to the foliage. Bold and glossy green leaves are clad to upright stems. Large clusters of white flowers provide a fantastic show in late winter. A distinctive specimen or informal hedge.

Most attractive in its natural form, making it well suited as a specimen, massing on hillsides, or as an informal, unclipped screen or hedge.

Prefers humus rich, well-drained soils, but highly adaptable. Water deeply, regularly during the first few growing seasons to develop an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Prune lightly as needed to shape after flowering.


The very first export from South America as an excellent source of ascorbic acid, considered to be the first cure for scurvy.
