Plant details

This is a weeping conifer with bluish needles, which left to its own devices makes a sprawling spread, but start training it and the results can be superb. It can be sent up a vertical post, and then left to arch up and down, creating a shaggy, hunch-backed witch, or used as ground cover or tied to a formal arch, with one growing at either side. Once settled, it's a fast grower.
