Height at maturity: Approx 2m (6.6').
Interest: In the summer, at fruiting time.
Planting distance: Approximately every 1.5m (4.9').Although when planting a screening hedge of only 1 species we would advise planting every 80cm (31.5"), in the case of a mixed flowering hedge we are looking for each plant to grow without competing with its neighbour and give its best.
Pruning: It is not recommended to prune this hedge.
