Description
 
A beautiful selection that we grow in a container as unfortunately we have to go to a friend's much more mild garden if we want to admire it planted out.  Likely this would gain some hardiness as it gets older but we have been smited by winter and bad timing each time we have tried.  We really like this and we're very stubborn so we'll give it another go and maybe we'll get that string of mild winters for it to settle in and man up.  Narrow habit with thin twigs and evergreen leaves edged in cream and variously tinted in pink.  Nice white flowers in late summer makes this a stunner.  Not a plant for dry or harshness of wind or heat, this likes a cool root run.  We've seen folks list this as being good to 5F but that is such a fantasy.  If that were true, we would have an elfin forest of these.
