A very hardy, low maintenance and versatile plant, tolerating both sun and shade with highly ornamental, silvery striped foliage all year round and soft lilac coloured flowers in summer followed by white, ornamental berries.
Its low clumping habit makes it ideal for edging or mass planting as ground cover. Prefers a shaded to part shade location in most soil types given good drainage. Very dry tolerant once established. Low watering requirements but should be watered regularly during extended periods of heat. Apply slow release fertiliser in spring.
