  • Description

  • Notes

A somewhat narrow shrub of loose, columnar form to 20', the 'Blue Haven' can be kept much lower with shearing. Its coarse foliage is a silvery-blue color. It is good for tall hedges or as a single accent specimen. Full sun should be present for growth.
Planting Instructions: 1. Dig a hole 2 times the width and 1 and 1/2 times the height of the container. 2. Set rootball at ground level. 3. Prepare soil mix of equal parts soil and soil amendment. 4. Backfill with amended soil. 5. Build basin and water.
