An attractive hedge plant with silvery white margins on glossy green leaves that adds unique color and texture to the landscape. Can be grouped to form a low screen. Highly adaptable; tolerates poor, lean soils and heat. An excellent topiary specimen for the landscape or containers. Evergreen.

Easy to grow in average, well-drained soils. Best with full sun in humid climates and afternoon shade in extremely hot climates. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Fertilize in early spring. Prune regularly to maintain shape as a topiary.


Average Size at Maturity Moderate growing; reaches 6 ft. tall, 3 ft. wide, in natural form.
Bloom Time Inconspicuous; prized for foliage.
Design Ideas An excellent light colored background to show off plants of unique color and form. A nice addition to an Asian inspired garden. Ideal contrast when intermixed with solid color evergreen hedges, cones and espalier. Makes a super espalier and can be purchased in pre-sheared topiary forms for containers or for European inspired formal evergreen gardens.
