It can be pruned in late winter or early spring to control its size and shape.

It can be used as a hedge or screen plant, or as a specimen plant in mixed borders or large containers. Its dense growth habit makes it an effective sound barrier and windbreak, as well as a habitat for wildlife such as birds and butterflies.
