This bushy evergreen shrub works really well in both pots and mixed borders. It forms a soft dome shape and has rich green leaves, which have a broad creamy yellow margin. This beautiful colouring looks wonderful beside most shades of purple as well as adding a softness to solid greens. The pinkish purple flowers are pretty too. They appear in midsummer in short spikes and continue with their show well into autumn.
