Popular ground cover for shady areas, grown for its leathery, glossy evergreen foliage. We've never established a large patch of it, as it is typically used in landscapes, but a bit of it sticks around by our foundation, and I keep it around for biodiversity's sake. Some years I am too busy puttering around the garden to notice the white flowers, but other years they put on a nice show.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
