This tough shrub is adaptable to adverse conditions and tolerates poor, lean soils. Versatile and easy to care for, it requires minimal attention once established, but takes well to regular pruning.

Design IdeasA single shrub makes a big, bold statement and is better in larger gardens. It is a very reliable accent in larger evergreen landscapes with far-off planting areas. An ideal hedge, it can be sheared or left to grow into a natural form that is dense enough to make a good visual and sound barrier. As tough as they come.
