Attribute detail


Selected by Wayne Roderick, 'Evie' grows 10 to 15 feet tall and wide, although it can be kept smaller. An attractive if unassuming shrub for much of the year, it is a showstopper in late winter when its creamy white male flower tassels emerge and transform the plant. Provide sun to part shade and occasional water away from the coast. Tolerates salt spray. Dark evergreen leaves and dense habit make it a good choice for a hedge or privacy screen, as well as a specimen plant. Can also be pruned into a small tree.
