Tolerates dry locations where irrigation is limited. Grows well on any well drained soils and can tolerate alkaline soils. Will not grow well in areas that are heavily irrigated like lawn areas.
Due to its slow growth rate and being tolerant of fairly hard pruning, makes it suitable for planting under or near power lines or where space is limited.
