Drought tolerant once established but accepts summer water as well. Frost hardy in USDA zone 6.

This evergreen rarely reaches more than 10-18". Dull, blue-green leaves in the summer, turning to a rich purple in the winter. Deep yellow flowers appear in April followed by black grape-like fruits that attract the birds nicely.
