This is a new and improved form of 'Emerald Gaiety' with superior leaf spot resistance and a consistent growing habit. Landscapers and gardeners will appreciate the bright leaves that set it apart from older varieties. The stable variegation has a large, cream-colored border around the perimeter of the large evergreen leaves.
Tolerant of most soils except extremely wet ones. pH adaptable. Withstands heavy pruning. Pruning can be done at any time, but is best done in late fall. Fertilize in spring with an evergreen fertilizer.
