Densely packed foliage is bright emerald green. Very fast growth, up to 3 feet per year in youth makes a quick solution to problem views or lack of privacy, though best reserved for estates or large commercial sites. Tolerant of most soils. Evergreen.

Highly adaptable, best in well-drained, average to enriched soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought in coastal and cool summer areas. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. May be pruned periodically to shape.


Average Size at Maturity Reaches 20 to 30 ft. in 10 years; 50 ft. tall, 20 ft. wide eventually.
