This rare shrub needs more attention from landscapers. It is one of the earliest 24 inch shrubs to produce flowers in the Spring. The small white bell shaped flowers cover every branch, feeding hungry insects. The light green leathery leaves are 1 inch tall slender and are evergreen. The leaves are deep green throughout the summer and then brownish tan in the winter months.
Plants thrive in wet conditions and will grow successfully in dryer soil types. Plants are cold hardy and can survive the cold temperatures in Northern Minnesota to the warm climate of Southern Illinois. Zones 3a-7b
