this is a no-fuss, low maintenance shrub.it's flowers are kind of showy for a shrub. it's susceptible to aphids, black spot, scales, spider mites, thrips, whiteflies. but neem oil sprayed on it eliminates them for quite a while and is a natural pesticide.

has large, leathery green leaves with silvery white margins. Greenish white flowers are sometimes followed by pink fruits. has a moderate growth rate
