Quick Overview:

‘Acrocona’ is a cultivar that is noted for producing showy immature red cones at the branch ends (acro meaning at the end) in spring. Cones are abundant in early years. Cones mature to tan by summer. This small conifer typically grows as a broad upright-spreading shrub, but may grow as a small tree. Ten year growth is in the area of 5-10′ tall. Trees will mature to about 20/ tall over time. Dark green needles.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
