Landscape Categories:
Comments: Can tolerate shade or sunny positions in a garden and do well in moist to moderately dry soils. Has deeply cut, sharp spiny, and stiff leaves that make working with this plant difficult. Can be used in containers, as a hedge, specimen and barrier plant. I has drought resistance and is well adapted to urban landscapes.
