Quick Overview:

?Rotundifolium? (synonymous with L. coriaceum or ?Coriaceum?) is a more compact and slower-growing cultivar that features thick, rounded, dark green, evergreen leaves (to 2.5? long) that are crowded onto upright stems to 4-5? tall. Creamy white flowers in pyramidal panicles (to 3? long) bloom in late May to early June. Flowers are considered to have an unpleasant aroma. Flowers give way to rounded black drupes which ripen in fall and persist into winter.

Description

Winter hardy to USDA Zones 7a-10. Where winter hardy, it is easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Tolerant of a wide range of soils, except wet ones. Tolerant of urban conditions. Prune as needed in spring immediately after flowering. If flowering is not a consideration, prune at any time.
