Design Ideas:

 

Mix with deciduous plants for a bit of evergreen structure eg Hydrangeas, OK in pots for a year or 2, or planted in the ground. Mix balls with Pittosporum "Golf Ball", Polygala "Petite Butterfly". Corokia "Geentys Green", Westringia "Aussie Box" & "Naringa", and Buxus "Green Gem".

Care:

 

Easy care. Fast growing, trim monthly to quarterly depending on how sharp you want it to look, Gets denser with trimming.  Pot up into larger pots every couple of years. Hard trim & fertilise to rejuvenate.
