Small, well-behaved and maintains its shape without pruning.
Outstanding four-season hedge with a lot of character.
The smoky grey twigs and the dark bronzy red interior add to its winter interest.
Very tolerant of harsh urban environments.
Small winter birds feed on the nutlets.
Very flexible planting requirements, from full sun to partial shade; grows well in dry as well as moist areas.
Extremely drought tolerant for Calgary and area gardens.
Does not tolerate grass growing around the base.
Prefers a mulched bed.
