Serissa japonica 'Variegata' (Rubiaceae)
This is an easy and casual shrub for the Southern woodland garden. Quietly attractive -- tiny opposite leaves with a subtle cream-colored variegation make this shrub quietly attractive. In late spring, small white flowers appear that resemble Spiraea. Grows 2-4' and needs no pruning if sited properly; a great companion to low-growing ground covers such as Ajuga, Laurentia, and Lamium. Not native.
