Design Ideas Narrow form means this plant works well in narrow city side yards. Also works well along backyard fence lines to block undesirable views. Small enough for courtyards and walled gardens, use as a corner element or treat as a semi-formal green column. Very adaptable to contemporary or Asian-inspired themes. A lifesaver on deep, narrow lots and as a columnar divider to separate multistory homes. Grow this tree with other plants that offer similar easy care requirements.
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Kohuhu (Pittosporum); Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia); Lily of the Nile (Agapanthus); Loropetalum (Loropetalum); Abelia (Abelia); Hebe (Hebe)
CARE
Care Provide enriched, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; prefers regular water but tolerates some drought. Feed in early spring before new growth emerges. Prune annually to shape.
