Moderate-growing evergreen conifer with a pyramidal growth habit to 15-25′ tall x 8-12′ wide. This attractive variety is a standout in any setting, forming a dense-growing, pyramidal-shaped column of feathery, silvery-blue-gray foliage set on reddish-purple branches. Well-suited as a solitary specimen or planted in multiples to create an effective and attractive screen or windbreak. This grateful variety tolerates heat, strong winds and drought conditions once fully established. Grows in a variety of soil conditions (provided they’re well-drained), and thrives in a full sun exposure. Few known pests or diseases.
