    One of the most sought after trees for Christmas, this upright tree has beautifully tiered branches, clothed with flattened, very slender rich green foliage, which has a pale near white reverse. It can be grown in a large pot for several years (provided it is kept well watered), but when grown in the garden, it will gradually form a magnificent specimen.

  • 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.
