Little Simon Details
Prized for its emerald-green, glossy, evergreen foliage (even in the middle of winter) as well as its narrow and upright habit, Green Spire is a wonderful hedge choice for warm, coastal areas such as Texas and Florida. It is hardy in USDA Zones 6-9. It is generally very easy to grow and maintain.
With optimum water and fertilizer, Green Spire can grow up to 1 foot per year, with almost all of the growth reaching straight upright. A slow-release fertilizer in early spring is perfect to encourage strong spring growth. At maturity, it can easily be maintained at 10 feet tall by 2 feet wide. It responds very well to hard pruning, making it an ideal hedge.
Green Spire grows well in full sun to nearly full shade, requiring only a few hours of sunlight per day. It has moderate drought resistance but does not like overly wet soil. Make sure your planting area is well-draining, but provide weekly water in dry times once established.
