Design IdeasConsidered one of the best golden conifers, this selection was found as a sport in the Netherlands. Its open, horizontal branching structure is covered with dense, bright gold-tipped needle-like sprays, contrasting with lime green interior foliage. A single plant makes a bright focal point in the garden, or plant en masse as an eye-catching hedge. This upright grower will reach 35 feet tall and 15 feet wide.
Care Information
