Plant details

Completely unlike its species parent, which makes a coniferous giant, this 1987 Dutch dwarf won't get above head height, though it does have a good spread. The lack of a leading, dominant shoot makes it more of a shrub. Finding the right position for its spreading, bluish-grey growth can be tricky, but in the right place - against a bank or a long, low wall - it's extremely effective.
