It can grow to 20 feet in height however responds very well to shearing and is often trimmed into a formal columnar shape at 8 feet or more in height.

    Uses

When trimmed into a tight column it's perfect for narrow spaces. In landscape beds it can be useful as a background, formal or natural hedge, as a stand-alone specimen, or "limbed up" to form a very attractive evergreen trree. It can also be grown indoors as a houseplant.
