Growing and Maintenance Tips:

A versatile evergreen tolerating heavy pruning, making it ideal for hedges, screens, foundation plantings and topiary landscapes. It can also be left unpruned for a softer textured landscape. Protection (burlap wrap) from drying winter winds is recommended in an exposed location.
