    Slowly forming a compact cone of splaying branches, this handsome conifer will make a fine stand-alone specimen. Its stems are adorned with slender green leaves, each with a silvery reverse that creates a steely blue lustre, and in late spring and early summer, upright purple-blue cones appear along the tops of the stems.

  • Garden care: Pruning is not usually necessary, however any shoots that ruin the symmetry of the plant can be removed in autumn. Apply a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plant (avoiding the immediate crown) in late winter.
