Quick Overview:

Discovered as a witch’s broom by Don Shadow. This beautiful selection produces bright, spring-green new growth that quickly matures to one of the darkest, richest greens in the conifer world. Short, closely held, shiny, green needles cover the tree’s ascending, rigid branches. When young, ‘Shadow’s Broom’ frequently displays a funnel-like center. As it matures, a leader develops and it slowly becomes a broad, mounding specimen.

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.
