Evergreen Japanese Spindle Bush is native to Southern Japan. The shrub habit is oval to rounded, more densely foliated in sun than in shade. It is a fast grower, so is typically used as a hedge or screen, and it is well-adapted to the seaside since it is salt tolerant. It seldom fruits outside its natural habitat. Ingesting any part of this plant can result in stomach problems. Some varieties are: 'Albomarginatus'-leaves edged in white & 'Aureomarginatus'-leaves edged in yellow.
