I love this beautiful plant – a substantial evergreen with beautiful leaves that are wavy around the edges. Great choice for a sheltered garden in need of a backdrop plant that gives elegance across the seasons, the foliage contrasts beautifully with the dark coloured stems.
I had a large specimen in my London garden, sadly I had to leave it behind when I relocated to Hertfordshire, but I know it will go on for many years giving pleasure and shelter to the newer occupants.
