  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained neutral to slightly acid soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Luminous golden green foliage, which has a fresh citrus scent when bruised, forms in a soft cone shape. A slow-growing conifer, it is excellent for pots, and will also make a handsome stand-alone specimen. Alternatively, it can be used for hedging, and once well established, it becomes tolerant of dryer conditions.

  • Garden care: Provide some shelter from cold, drying winds, and trim plants grown as hedges in late spring, taking care not to cut into old wood.
