Helpful barrier to shield more sensitive planting from winter wind and snow drift. Provides solid foliage to mask crawl spaces and utilities in foundation planting. Blend with gold and bronze evergreens in mixed shrub borders. The spreading form is an ideal bank cover for erosion control.

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; reduce frequency once established. Apply a slow release fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune annually to shape.
