This tidy, conical shrub is great for windbreaks, hedges, or for a pair framing a feature in your landscape.  Makes a great feature plant alone in a design as well!  Very densely branched, the beautiful soft fern like foliage makes quite a statement in any garden.  Shears beautifully, even if kept in a low hedge as a replacement for boxwood.   Tolerates most soils, is very low maintainence, and adds a welcome touch of green to the winter landscape!
