A must-have plant for any landscape, 'Compacta' is ideal as a formal hedge, accent, foundation planting, or topiary. Its compact habit, slow growth rate, and tiny green leaves make it suitable for nearly any landscape application. 'Compacta' develops a dense, rounded silhouette without pruning, but can be sheared as desired to fit your specific needs. In spring, small yellow flowers complement its rich green foliage before transforming into black ornamental berries in fall.
