A great ornamental looking tree for my area. Isn't fazed at all by our droughts or long cold spells. Takes foot traffic and roosting chickens. Cedar Waxwings stop by in early spring to eat the fruit within a couple of hours and move on. Fruit is a liitle too tart for my liking, like a citrusy peach.

I picked a couple of these up from a hotel that was changing their landscaping. They had them planted indoors. I put them outside in a shady spot and they tripled in size in a couple of years. I have done nothing to them and they don't seem to be picky. No bug or any other problems, nice evergreen with a different look to it. I saw these planted in a park in full sun and I noticed they were dead by the end of the summer so I'm thinking they don't like the sun in zone 9.
