I saw one of these at our GC the other day, I know I should have looked at how tall it grows but didn't - how big does it get please Shirley, I love the colour of the leaves they are really dark and mysterious looking.

I love this - always been meaning to get it - but usually as the GC you later saw it in - too expensive

Olive - it gets big but is quite amenable to being cut back hard in early spring each year. You won't get any flowers this way but it's such a good foliage shrub, I don't think that matters. I'm growing it behind choisya ternata 'Sundance'
