    Design IdeasA wonderful early harbinger of spring in the garden, this a perfect choice for hedges or as a specimen planting. Tight, compact form is perfect for today's smaller gardens. Growing quickly to 10 ft. tall in the first five years, reaching a mature height of 20 to 25 ft. with a compact dense dome-shaped canopy, one's imagination can run wild with the landscape possibilities of this versatile plant. In sunny summer gardens, the foliage shimmers yellow-gold. A spectacular plant for illuminating a dappled shade spot in the garden, where shaded foliage will turn chartreuse-green.
