Design Ideas: The dense form of this evergreen is impressive planted in a row along the edge of the garden or along the drive. It lends a formal look to the garden, and makes a good foil to shrubs with a more casual form. Planted singly, it makes a fine statement.

Thrives in enriched, evenly moist, loamy, well-drained soils; dislikes dry conditions. Mulch around root zone and shelter from drying winds. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy appearance, prune annually to shape.

look great and doing well

I was more than pleased with the plants when I picked them up. They are doing well, and I expect them to stay that way

Holmstrup “Waiting for them to grow-Up”!
by SJH, October 25, 2017

Purchase was seamless. Nursury photo with measurement stick indicating the overall height at 32” made me content. Delivery was 7 days from Oregon to ATL, GA. Picked up 8 3.6 gallon containers within hours of off-loading from Pike’s. Plants were lush, perfect condition and ready for earthen setting as soon as they arrived at their final destination. These were planted at 28” centers, along my property line for a distance of 13’-0”. Nice immature privacy screen, 3 years in the future, will be beautiful and carefree. Good bye, nosy neighbors!
