Quick Overview:

‘Lemon Thread’ is a slow-growing, semi-dwarf, broadly-conical, shrubby variety that will typically grow to 3-5′ over the first 20 years but may eventually reach 10-12′ tall. It is noted for its bright yellow thread-like foliage. Foliage can be quite attractive in winter. Small cones appear only on mature plants. Peeling, reddish-orange bark develops on mature plants.
