Discovered in the wild on Mount Daisen in Japan, this narrow, columnar form evergreen is just right for small areas. The dark green foliage holds its color year round, sporting purple berries in the fall. Outstanding for use as vertical accent, near entryways or as a privacy screen. Effective as a single specimen, narrow hedge, or mixed with other evergreen and deciduous plants. Well suited for urban gardens and smaller spaces which demand a strong vertical accent. Excellent for formal spaces or foundation plantings. Planted in a large container, it makes an elegant, formal appearance.
