Design IdeasThis is a wide, medium-height plant that makes a broad hedge capable of separating different 'rooms' of the garden without blocking light or view. A perfect foundation plant that won't need topping. Excellent in tough conditions along streets or driveways. Adds relief in stands of very low-growing Juniper groundcovers, where the accent color of the foliage stands out boldly in contrast.
