Elegant columnar selection, highly valued as an accent or perimeter planting where a strong vertical effect is needed. Dark green evergreen needles are slightly curved on closely set limbs, creating a slender, uniform form with dense branching to the ground. Withstands heavy snow loads. Tolerates heat and humidity better than others. Ideal windbreak or privacy wall.
Care:
Prefers slightly acidic, well-drained soils, but adaptable to most soil types; avoid wet, shady sites. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Apply general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
