I am a delightful medium height conifer with a soft, natural cone shape and golden-green aromatic, lemon-scented foliage.
I perform equally well garden planted as I do container painted in large posts.
Plant me near paths, doors and windows where the scent can be enjoyed when brushing against the foliage.
Planting a row of me at close spacing is a great way to create a low maintenance screening hedge.
My good natural form requires no pruning to look great but I can be pruned to formal shapes as desired.
