Plant details

A truly slow-growing conifer with distinctive tiny fans of golden foliage on a somewhat irregular-shaped bush. Its ideal for a small garden and can be grown in tubs or sinks for a number of years before eventually planting out in the garden. Winter heathers and dwarf shrubs such as hebes, make perfect partners in a bed or border.
