Position: full sun or partial shade
Soil: any well-drained soil
Rate of growth: fast-growing
Flowering period: May and June
Hardiness: fully hardy
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, but it also makes a good foil for more ornamental flowering shrubs. It is tough and will thrive in any well-drained border in sun or partial shade.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. Remove any plain green-leaved shoots as soon as they appear, cutting them back to the original branch.Goes well with: Viburnum tinus 'Eve Price', Ceratostigma willmottianum, Garrya elliptica 'James Roof', Sarcococca confusa, Epimedium x perralchicum 'Frohnleiten', Geranium macrorrhizum 'Album'
