There's no doubt that this is the quintessential screening plant loaded with landscape plusses. Growing quickly and possessing a narrow, upright form, 'Nigra' is covered in densely held, deep green, fan-like foliage causing little chance of seeing objects on the other side! Best of all, unlike other large evergreens, 'Nigra' has a small footprint that makes it even easier to work with. It's perfect for growing in full sun or partial shade and tolerates all but the wettest soils with little complaint.
