    The young foliage of this upright conifer is a bright golden colour, so it can be used to add a luminous backdrop to larger borders, but it is also suitable for making an eyecatching hedge. An invaluable plant for the winter garden, it adds a touch of warmth when the foliage takes on a richer orange hue as the temperatures drop.

  • Garden care: Trim, if necessary, in spring and again in late summer to maintain a neat shape. When young, protect from cold, drying winds.
