Multiple trunks and irregular growth is great for view lots that need visual relief without sacrificing the panorama. This beauty is gorgeous silhouetted by the rising or setting sun. Makes a fine specimen in the Asian garden or in Mediterranean schemes. Particularly attractive with landscape boulders and dry streambeds.|

|Care||Grows best in slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune semi-annually to maintain shape and structure.|
