Dwarf tree, selected from chemically treated seed in the Netherlands by Pete Vergeldt. Dense, compact spire has soft, green foliage. In autumn, the needles change to red-brown for 2-3 weeks. In winter, tiered branches with upward tips provide interest. A deciduous conifer. Can be kept small and narrow with late-winter pruning. ACS Collector's Choice.
