One of the finest evergreens for use as screening or a windbreak, this upright conifer is versatile, strong-rooted and virtually disease-free. Its uniform shape seldom needs pruning, but responds well to shearing. Thrives in southern heat and humidity. A durable, handsome accent tree.
Adapts to a wide range of soil types; avoid poorly drained, overly wet sites. Water deeply and regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates drought. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.

Quickly reaches 25 to 30 ft. tall, 8 to 10 ft. wide in 10 years; 50 to 60 ft. tall with time.
Bloom Time
