A great plant to separate multistory city homes on narrow lots without crowding them. Makes a great evergreen screen to block unattractive views, increase privacy or absorb sound. With its pretty flowers, it makes a great accent tree for small space. Ideal for town houses and condominiums.

Provide deep, nutrient-rich, acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce watering frequency; best with regular moisture, but will tolerate brief periods of drought. Feed in early spring before new growth emerges.
