Quick Overview:

A deciduous, coniferous tree that grows in a conical shape. It is a cultivar that features soft, linear, feathery, fern-like foliage that is distinctively golden-yellow throughout summer. Foliage gradually turns orange-brown in fall. As the tree matures, the trunk broadens at the base and develops attractive and sometimes elaborate fluting. The bark is interesting on this deciduous tree, with deep fissures, giving it winter interest. It thrives in many kinds of soil.

Description
