In the Garden
In gardens, this handsome tree will reach a height of 10-20 meters, but it is slow-growing and long-lived, so it is best regarded as a large shrub to small tree. It’s also a classic choice for hedging and topiary since it is fond of being clipped.
This tough little tree tolerates almost any soil and will grow in sun or shade. Its only requirement is that the soil should not be constantly waterlogged, so choose a well-drained position and don’t over-water.
