Design IdeasThis bushy tree makes the ideal screen or hedge plant due to its tolerance for shearing. A perfect side or backyard privacy screen to block off RVs drying yards, utility areas and undesirable land uses. Great plant for hiding swimming pool safety fencing, particularly chain link. Use as an evergreen background plant for more high profile tropicals or perennials or back of a shrub border. Plant around patios and prune for enclosure and light filtered shade at maturity. Makes a good warm climate topiary specimen.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, shear annually to shape.
