“Elizabeth” is an evergreen shrub with uniquely shaped and coloured foliage. The oval leaves are wavy and variegated. And the foliage exhibits a striking pink colour combined with cream along the fringes.
Flowering, which occurs during the months of May and June, is usually not significant, but when noticeable they are pleasantly scented with notes of honey and vanilla. These are followed much later in the season with small, brown fruit.
Tolerant of most soil types, however, they prefer the soil to be well-drained. They are especially good in full sun to partially shaded areas.
Hardy down to -10⁰ C, they will fare better in sheltered positions that protect them from cold winter winds.
Suggested uses include as a complete and unique hedge row. This plant also works well for including in a design as part of a natural-feeling garden arrangement, like around a cottage. Also, pruning for size in late summer can help adjust for appropriate size and growth in courtyard or urban garden areas. Although, in general, light pruning is recommended.
