Large evergreen shrub growing to 5-8′ tall and wide. Gracefully arching branches of lance-shaped bronzy-red new foliage matures to a lovely chartreuse-green with an attractive glossy sheen. This heat-tolerant species is easily kept to a smaller size as it takes well to shearing making it a fine choice to use as a medium-sized hedge or screen. Though exhibiting relatively low water needs a more lush and attractive plant will be achieved with a more regular watering schedule and a spring feeding with a well balanced fertilizer. Full to partial sun.
