An upright tree developing a slender ovoid head that can reach 10metres in height. The dense green leaves turn a golden yellow in the autumn and the withered foliage can be retained well into the winter.
Hardy and easy for an exposed or a sheltered site, this tree grows on any soil from free draining to heavy clay except thin soil over chalk.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
