Compact, mounding, evergreen shrub with short, stiff, dark green needles. This evergreen used in rock gardens, mass plantings and in groupings. Also makes a great container plant and is excellent for use as a bonsai plant. Has salt tolerance and can withstand some drought.

I shear mine once a year.

Dave, can you tell us how and when you're shearing this one?

Edwin, Mid to late spring when new candles extended half way..

I shear back to old growth.

Not a real common one sold here. In fact I have never seen another one available to the public.

A neat conversation piece to have in the garden that will never out grow its area provided it gets its yearly shearing.
