When not in flower, its upright habit helps it create a fine evergreen background for a variety of conditions. Plant around the house to cover foundations and to fill window-free walls. Use along fence lines and add vivid color to outdoor living spaces, porches and patios. Even grows well under the filtered shade of old street trees dominating the front yard. Can be used as an informal hedge, partition or privacy screen. As the name suggests, a must holiday decoration in containers or as cut flowers throughout the house.
