Native to the highlands of western North America. A noteworthy feature is a well defined leader; though in small plants, it may take some years for the leader to become established. Closely spaced, slightly ascending branches have grayish needles spirally arranged on the stems. One of the finest alpine conifers you'll find! It's a slow grower and makes a good bonsai subject.

Handsome, evergreen conifer, native along the Pacific Coast from southern Alaska to the mountains of central California. Can reach 20-30 ft tall x 10-15 ft wide in the garden. Enjoys cool temperatures and moist conditions; does well in part shade or in full sun if not allowed to dry out. Consistent summer water is best. Frost hardy in USDA zone 5.

The most singularly beautiful of all the California conifers (J.Muir), smaller ; slower with blue-green foliage "sprays arranged in varied, eloquent harmony [; a tip which] droops like the stalk of a nodding lily." PSh/Med
