Glossy spiny, blue-green foliage abundantly grows on densely packed branches in a symmetrical, pyramidal habit. A neat and compact, slow growing evergreen which will mature to 2.4m in height and spread of 1.5m, so perfect for the smaller garden. As this variety is male, no berries are produced, however clusters of dainty, white blossom with green centres appears in spring, nectar rich to tempt in the bees and pollinators.
