Is this something I could cut with hedge to gave a shape to? I'm looking at covering 2 AC units but want a hedge look.

Thank you
Asked by: Dixie911
This plant will only get to be 3ft tall at maturity, so I am not sure it will get tall enough to hide your ac unit, and this plant does not hold a trimmed shape very well.
