Moderately slow-growing evergreen tree or large shrub with a columnar growth habit to 15-20’ tall x 6-8’ wide. This popular and useful variety features dense-growing medium to deep-green foliage that takes very well to shearing, making it an ideal selection for use as a hedge, screen, background, column or topiary. Perfect for framing an entryway, for large patio containers, or anywhere a tall, narrow-growing specimen is required. Prefers a neutral to slightly-acidic loamy soil, as clay soils will tend to produce a weaker, less aesthetically-pleasing specimen. Thrives in a partial to full sun exposure.
