New Jersey Tea has glossy leaves, numerous clusters of bright white flowers and a mounding shape. Planted two to three feet apart it forms an attractive low growing hedge, and is an excellent choice for rocky hillsides and slopes. New Jersey Tea requires a well-drained site. The deep tap root makes it very drought tolerant once established. The long-lived plants will mature in 2 to 3 years. 

It is a host plant for Spring Azure and Summer Azure butterflies and also attractive to hummingbirds, which eat insects that pollinate the small flowers.
