Large evergreen shrub growing to 8-10′ tall and wide. Can also be trained into a small tree. Gracefully arching branches of lance-shaped bronzy-red new foliage that matures to a chartreuse-green with an attractive glossy sheen. This heat-tolerant species is easily kept to a smaller size as it takes well to shearing making it a fine choice to use as a large hedge or screen. Though exhibiting relatively low water needs a more lush and attractive plant will be achieved with a regular watering schedule. Provide a spring feeding with a well-balanced fertilizer. Full to partial sun.
