It's a small, evergreen shrub that has a stunning cascading habit that looks great on the edge of a shady rockery or as a container specimen as shown below. It greens up come summer, but the winter color it takes on is absolutely gorgeous. The glossy leaflets arranged in a zigzag pattern makes it truly unique.
Like most members of the Ericaceae, it prefers slightly acidic, well-drained soils and regular moisture to really thrive.
