An easy to grow evergreen plant from New Zealand that left unclipped will reach about 2-3m/6.5-9.8ft in height and around 2m/6.5ft wide. It can be clipped to maintain a more compact shape. The leaves are smallish and silvery green with black stems. It will stand exposure to some strong wind but is best protected from severe coastal exposure. It will also grow well in most free draining garden soils in full sun to partial shade.
