Compact evergreen shrub with dense bushy foliage of bright green, undulating leaves on dark, almost black stems. Small chocolate-purple, honey scented flowers in spring. Relatively hardy.

Dislikes wet soil and cold winds, so best given some protection unless grown in a mild climate. May make new growth if cut back by frost.

Can be used for hedging in mild locations.
