Powder blue/green needles, and branches that are tight to the body of the plant make this an outstanding accent plant.  Narrow, upright choice for a small garden, informal hedge or garden feature.  A 1975 introduction from Wells Nursery.  the Colorado market believes this selection will hold better against heavy snow loads.
