SKU

A graceful, finely textured evergreen shrub with a spreading, mounded habit. The dense, glossy, needle-like, foliage emerges bright green, then matures to a dark green and retains its color year-round. Its compact size is ideal for small gardens, low hedges, or borders and can easily be pruned to maintain a smaller size.

Thrives in well-drained soils, with morning sun and afternoon shade. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, prefers regular moisture but tolerates brief drought. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy appearance, prune annually to shape.
