Compact bushy evergreen shrub. Attractive foliage with ovate wavy leaves that are dark green with conspicuous pale midribs when mature. This contrasts with the young spring growth which is bright golden green on reddish branchlets.

Well drained soil in a sunny position. 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.
