      Seemingly not very exciting this evergreen from Chile forms a semi-lax shrub whose stiff, slender branches are loosely clothed with small, wavy, elliptic, satiny, green leaves and carry short panicles of small, tubular, white flowers. Though quietly appealing it is the fallen foliage that emits a pleasing curry like aroma when crushed or walked on that makes it an attractive low input candidate for planting besides paths or seating areas in formal or informal gardens.

      Easily grown in any well drained but not too rich or moist soil in all but the most exposed sites. Appreciates a little summer water in Perth but in cooler regions should be fine with none. Prunes well and could even make an informal hedge but is otherwise happy to be left alone for many years.

      A New Zealand vine for the clothing of unsightly structures, the finest wire frame topiary and often grown free standing as a hedge. Dark, wiry stems, sparingly bear, tiny, glossy, almost circular leaves, grow rapidly and branch readily to form a darkly appealing, shaggy curtain, or billowing mounds sans support.
      Fluid and amorphous, regular trimming improves density and can yield surprisingly articulate definition. I imagine, clipped into a free form sculpture, it could compose an entire garden, restful and easily maintained with a hedge trimmer (no woody branches here), especially practical and appealing in commercial installations, drive-throughs for instance, which are typically filled with ill suited shrubbery clipped to within an inch of life. Clusters of tiny. cream, urn shaped flowers of no importance.

      Hardy and rambunctious, tolerant of sun or shade and any reasonably drained soil, some summer water is recommended to maintain lushness. Not a good idea on living trees, great for cloaking dead ones.
