    Design IdeasA hardy male inkberry that produces no fruit with excellent foliage. Makes a fine background for showier short stature plants in winter or summer. Evergreen cover-up for year around beauty along foundations or fence lines. Well suited to low hedges either natural or sheared into a rigid formal character for dividing front yards. Single specimens can also be sheared for topiary-like precision form. Wind resistance makes an excellent choice that helps with snow drift.
