This deciduous conifer is perfect for that "wet spot" where few trees would survive. It has a reddish brown bark and branches that spread out and up. Its pretty foliage is very much like the yew, fresh green in spring, turning bronze before dropping in fall. This tree grows 2-4" a year and in 10 years it may reach 16' high and 8' wide. Very beautiful and distinctive.

Tall, pyramidal tree with glowing orange fall color; develops characteristic "knees" in wet areas, but grows well in drier sites as well. Sun/Med-Wet
