Growth Rate: Moderate
Special Feature: Dramatic Foliage Color, Tolerates Poor Soils, Year-round Interest
Foliage Color: Variegated
Bloom Time: Spring

Garden Style: Mediterranean ,   Contemporary
Design Ideas: Fast growth and tall stature make this an ideal plant for screen hedges. Shear to encourage more dense growth or let it grow naturally. When sheared, good for side-yard screens or as garden partitions for disguising tennis courts and utility yards. Also a great candidate for simple topiary forms such as spheres and squares if clipped from infancy. May be grown in large pots for very formal topiary effects.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, shear annually to shape.
