A bold, pyramidal form with sparkling silvery blue foliage that drapes from the expansive branches. One of the most popular evergreen conifers. A spectacular specimen for large landscape areas that increases in character as it ages. Drought tolerant, when established.
Care:
Best in loamy well-drained soils, but highly adaptable. Water deeply and regularly during the first few growing seasons to develop an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild periodic drought. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
