The narrow, columnar form, is just right for small areas. Dark green foliage holds its color year round, sporting purple berries in fall. Outstanding for use as vertical accent, near entryways or as a privacy screen. Planted in a large container, it makes an elegant, formal appearance. Evergreen. Photo credit: Doreen Wynja
