Plant details

A low-spreading, creamy yellow conifer, it creates a flash of evergreen making excellent groundcover in a wild garden. It also makes a big impact in a large rock garden. Highlight the bright colour (best on the new spring growth) by using a dark green yew in the background. 'Golden Saucer' is a good alternative, and both can be pruned for shape and to make sure they don't spread too far. Specialist conifer nurseries should carry a wide range of cultivars.
