Robustico is very tolerant of pruning and can be cut in many shapes. It is suited foor hedges, plant throughs, pots and many more. Another benefit of the Robustico is that it grow small blossoms from May to June thatattract insects.
This strong plant is winterhardy and wintergreen, which means the Robustico keeps its ornamental value all year round with its glossy leaves.
