Outstanding Qualities

A dwarf columnar lily-of-the-valley shrub with all great qualities of its larger siblings! In late winter to early spring clusters of urn-shaped white flowers adorn this small sentinel in the garden. Diminutive evergreen leaves are chartreuse when they first emerge then mature to a glossy green for year-round charm.
