Design Ideas This is a super windbreak plant when lined in a tight row. When slightly separated, its staccato repeats create an architectural divide. This column of green foliage is available in spirals and poodle columns that are perfect in formal gardens or, best of all, as potted specimens. Also, you can let them grow naturally and gradually shape as you see fit. Perfect for Persian-inspired courtyard gardens when used as a matched set of four at the corners of a large tiered fountain or central plaza. A good choice for bringing two-story walls down to a more human scale.
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Maiden Grass (Miscanthus); Rose (Rosa); Catmint (Nepeta); Russian Sage (Perovskia); Barberry (Berberis)
CARE
Care Highly adaptable and easy to grow in most well-drained soils; avoid overly wet conditions. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune as needed to shape.
