Quick Overview:

A stunning small narrow, upright tree for full sun. Dark green needles most of the year but in spring, look out! The new growth is a rich buttery yellow color providing a stunning contrast. As summer comes the new growth fades to green. Adds an ‘extra interest’ feature to the summer and winter landscape. Grows 6-12″ per year.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Prefers rich, moist soils, but tolerates some poor soils including rocky ones. Although established plants have some drought tolerance, soils should be kept consistently moist and not allowed to dry out in the early years.
