Anyone ever attempt to containerize and style a drimys lanceolata? I really like Madrone and manzanita for their red bark and evergreen aspects, but this plant seems perhaps easier to keep in a garden in the PNW.

Come Spring I’ll try to get a first design and prune in. Any ideas are welcome of course. Right now it is super lanky.

I had a Drymis alpina

I was trying to grow it as an outside for summer, under lights for winter sub-tropical like a Ficus. It failed to survived the under lights phase. But that is because I took time off, and it went a few too many days between being watered. I love the fragrance of the bark and roots when I would handle or work with it. Never did well enough to flower or set seen. Species with culinary ? medicinal uses are always a fascination for me. Alas, I no longer have one.
