Mix of Sun & Shade


Little Missy is a compact mounding to rounded cultivar. It is extremely cold hardy and sun tolerant. It can be used in an application where a smaller plant is desired and it responds well to shearing. It is a great choice for uses where ultimate desired size is in the 2’ x 2’ range. Foliage is very dark green, slightly rounded and comes to a pronounced point at the end of the leaf.
