Consider it a requirement in a country or Victorian garden. Makes a healthy, dense and wonderfully scented screen or privacy hedge.|

|Care||Provide enriched, moist, well-drained soil. Shelter from intense afternoon sun in hot summer regions. Water deeply, regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize before new growth begins in early spring. Prune annually for a neat appearance and to maintain desired size and shape.|
