Please remove 'deer tolerant' from your ratings. The deer eat every blessed shoot of this shrub every winter. Clearly one of their favorites :(. It takes all summer for it to releaf, only to be demolished again come the fall, winter and spring. Of course, if you aren't plagued by deer, it's a wonderful 'evergreen.'
The deer ate every leaf on this shrub and return every year to do the same.
Outstanding plant for the shade garden. Large variegated leaves give glints of light and contrast in the darker parts of your landscape.
