Tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions, including poor soils, salt spray and drought once established. The species normally grows in wetlands near the coast. Sun or part shade.
This clone is not invasive.

Can be pruned, preferably in early summer.

The colouring gives an effect somewhat similar to Choisya 'Sundance' but should be suitable for more exposed situations.
