A green hedge with shiny leaves that turn yellowish brown in autumn. The hedge grows best in humous soils with good permeability and should not be kept too wet. Withered leaves remain on the branches after the autumn colouring and so provide privacy and structure even in winter.
Trim twice a year at the end of May and end of August or once around the longest day (21 June) in cloudy weather. Not in bright sunlight as this may cause burning. However, preferably trim twice as it makes the hedge more compact. Does not tolerate closed paving.
