This medium to fast grower does not usually have a single leader. Bushy in nature, the needles are a very light yellow with some green. Sensitive to sunburn but well worth it if you have a spot for it in dappled or light shade.

Brilliant cream-to-sulphur-yellow needles make this slow growing, eventually open, medium-sized pyramid a real eye-catcher!... even from a distance. Sun/Med
