When I bought this tree/shrub in 2015 the nursery tag read ‘Rare!’. I now see them everywhere, and I’m not surprised, this attractive conifer is probably very popular. A stalwart of my deck garden, it’s weathered really dry spells with aplomb and continues to be a fantastic accent that always looks great. I’ve had to knock off some dead needles around the trunk which I think is due to my underwatering in late summer, but new branches sprout from the trunk and recovers nicely.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
