Gorgeous evergreen shrub maintaining 95% of its beautiful variegated foliage throughout the year. No VA had 2 back-to-back difficult winters. This pretty girl lost a minimal amount of leaves, but other than that, did great. That amazing citrus/baby powder wafting fragrance is always a welcome scent toward winter's end, signifying spring will be coming. This has been a slow grower for me, possibly due to being in mostly shade beneath the dwarf magnolia. The slow growth has been a "plus" for me, though, as I have limited space.
