This unique beauty combines a falt-spreading, horizontal habit with distinctive, blue foliage that hugs the ground. The mid-size conifer is nearly flat when young but eventually develops a leader with age, unless pruned to keep it low. New blue-green needles keep their soft, feathery look as they mature. Discovered Iseli Nursery in 1979, it quickly became a classic. This plant needs even moisture and well-drained soil. Can be drought-tolerant. Consider allowing it to drape over a bank or log, or down a wall.
