Originating in Mediterranean Europe, this beautiful, non-fruiting, evergreen shrub has a multi branching, compact, & rounded habit, making it a versatile bush. You can use it as a hedge, coastal exposure, specimen shrub, or train it into a topiary bush/a singly trunk tree. The trimmed versions are perfect for smaller spaces. Without trimming, it grows at a moderate speed reaching 4-8' tall & 4-5' wide. It blooms in the spring & has a winter hardiness of 15-20ºF, making it a year round outdoor plant in some areas!
