Moderate-growing evergreen shrub to 6-8’ tall and wide. Can be pruned into a small, single-trunk patio tree. This attractive, non-fruiting dwarf variety offers all the qualities of its full-sized cousins, but in a manageable compact-growing size. Dense-growing olive-green leaves with silvery-colored undersides form a large, rounded shrub that’s ideal for smaller-sized landscapes. Takes well to shearing and is well-suited as a single specimen, hedge, topiary or attractive container specimen. This handsome variety is heat, drought and salt tolerant, and has few known pests or diseases. Prefers a rich, well-drained soil, and thrives in a full sun exposure.
