Also known as Myrtle, and an extremely popular evergreen groundcover. This less common selection forms a dense mat of glossy dark green leaves, studded with clean white flowers in spring. Very shade tolerant, the leaves will sometimes scorch in too much sun. Tolerates dry shade once plants are established. Stems root into the ground readily, and the new plants that form may be easily moved to a new location in spring or early autumn.
5-8 plants per m2.
