Fast growing - 2ft a year in good conditions - beat the retailers at their own game. All you need is a patch of earth or you could do 'wild' gardening - ie plant them on some public land then come cut down your property in 5 years time.
We've specifically chosen to grow this variety because it has stunning, glossy, deep green-blue flat needles that won't end up all over the carpet. The tip of the leaf on these evergreen conifers is usually blunt, often slightly notched at the tip, but can be pointed, particularly on strong-growing shoots on young trees. It has a lovely, bushy growth habit with a broad bottom. The cones are 10-20 cm long and 4-5 cm broad, when the tree is mature.
