Companion PlantsContrast the weeping form with the swordlike foliage of Bronze New Zealand Flax (Phormium tenax 'Atropurpureum Compactum') or a grassy element such as the Fountain Grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Hameln'). A grouping of the extremely columnar Skyrocket Juniper (Juniperus virginiana 'Skyrocket') also makes a good upright statement.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
