I was at the Elgeston Children’s Hospital of Atlanta and saw two hedges of this shrub. On one side, they were growing underneath crape myrtles trees and on the other, in front of wall. The ones on the wall were a brighter green than the ones underneath the trees but they seemed to be growing quite well. The leaves had a scent when ripped and they also had curious-looking berries/seeds growing here and there. I’m in Decatur and would like to use these shrubs as a hedge for my backyard. Thx!
