    Sounds perfect for an upright thick hedge/barrier that will quickly go to 3, 4, 5, 6 feet. I've had mine for three years, and they barely grow 2-3 inches/yr. Currently about 2 ft high, although very healthy looking, I am very disappointed at the slow growth rate.

    Great plant when I bought them. I am learning more about how to care for them but the price is rather expensive, you can get them cheaper somewhere else
