Gardeners' Notes:

Did very well through the summer and fall drought with minimal watering in a morning sun/afternoon shade raised bed. Has been growing and rounding out nicely this spring. Hasn't yet bloomed this year but it's quite lovely due to its deep, dark green mature foliage and the lime green new growth, which are both in a pleasing rounded form. Looking forward to another spring of its bright white blossoms.
