Quick Overview:

‘Whipcord’ is a shrubby, slow-growing, dwarf form that features pendulous whipcord-like green foliage which droops from branchlets rising upward from the center before arching downward. This small shrub typically grows as a flattened mound when young (to 2′ tall and to 3′ wide over the first 10 years), but eventually forms over time a more rounded shrub to 4-5′ tall and as wide. Glossy green foliage usually acquires bronze tones in winter.

Description

Best grown in moist, fertile, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Thrives in cool summer climates. Intolerant of dry conditions. Best in full sun, but generally appreciates some light afternoon shade in hot summer climates.
