Maintenance Notes: 

Prefers moist, well-drained soil. Fertilize with a controlled release fertilizer in spring. Pruning is seldom needed, but may be trimmed in summer.

This is an improved, fast-growing form of 'Winter Gem'. Its glossy evergreen foliage is attractive year-round, and it has excellent hardiness. This variety's more upright habit makes it great for hedging. Faster growth means it will fill in more quickly than other varieties.  Use it for edging or a low hedge in formal gardens.
