Fast-growing evergreen shrub or small tree with an upright growth-habit to 20’ tall x 15’ wide. This bold and vigorous variety features dense, rich-deep-green foliage on branching that twists upward to create a dramatic, billowing effect. Perfect for adding a sculptured appearance to the landscape, and is well-suited as a focal point, screen or windbreak. Tolerates coastal conditions, and requires little water once fully established. Prefers a fast-draining soil and thrives in a full sun exposure. Deer resistant.
