It makes a good alternative to box as it's fast growing and can be tightly clipped into small hedges. It's also useful for elaborate topiary shapes as its twiggy growth is quite supple and can be easily trained when young. It thrives on most soils in sun or shade and will benefit from regular trimming to retain its shape.

    Due to unforeseen circumstances (my end) I did not receive these plants till 10 days after shipping. Fearing the worst, I opened the packaging to find extremely healthy plants AND the compost was still damp! Great little starter trees for Bonsai
