Great evergreen plant. Review says it needs protection but mine has suffered wind and snow without a Mark. I have mine in clay soil and use as a hedging plant at the front of the border. The flowers are small but add interest, slightly scented.Low maintenance , just trim lightly after flowering. Do not cut into old wood.
