Euan, it seems that I'm the only one here who is growing this very rare cultivar.
It's colour is very unusual for this species...

Beautiful!
And so different from the glossy, dark-green needles of the native trees here in the Pacific Northwest!

Where/how did this cultivar originate, Edwin?

Very nice plant you must graft some cuttings however
I find that Tsuga roots easy from cuttings.Please tell
us more about this cultivar.

Yes, I agree with Euan, very attractive plant.

If possible, Edwin please propagate for next year.

Friends, unfortunately I don't know the history of this beautiful and very rare cultivar.
All I can tell is that I bought some 1 year old grafted plants from a German nursery and that I put them into a bigger pot.
This was a couple of years ago and in the meanwhile these are about 1 metre high and are growing at my nursery in a 15 litre pot waiting to go to other conifer freaks...
