Plant details

Although growth of this tree for the first five years or so is slow, it then accelerates to become one of the fastest growing conifers, both in height and timber volume. A very handsome, easy to grow, and disease resistant tree with highly aromatic, dark green foliage.This tree makes a wonderful specimen in the garden.
