Info

A graceful plant with very slender blue-green leaves (yellow in Fall) on young burgundy stems that thrives in poor soil and is somewhat drought tolerant. Compact and refined, it can be easily shaped. It can actually be pruned to a formal hedge or even a topiary. It actually loves being shaped and is happy to be kept at 2-3 or even Bonsai size! Sways beautifully in the breeze. Tremendous design potential. Fast grower. Extremely cold hardy. Great Plant Picks - Miller Botanical Garden. Native to Europe, western Asia.
