Width: 16 inches (40 cm).
Early to late spring.
White flowers born on corymb-like racemes that cover the shrub.
Evergreen, small, spoon-shaped leaves.
Moist, well-drained, neutral soil (neutral soil shown in references but it thrives on acidic soil in my Pacific Northwest garden.)
Side dress with compost or composted manures in spring.
Sow seed in autumn and place in a cold frame. | Softwood cuttings in late spring, semi-ripe cuttings in summer.
Prune lightly after flowering to keep compact.
