    Design IdeasA single shrub makes a big, bold statement and is better in larger gardens. It is a very reliable accent in larger evergreen landscapes with far-off planting areas. An ideal hedge, it can be sheared or left to grow into a natural form that is dense enough to make a good visual and sound barrier. As tough as they come.
