Comments: Slow grower, showing only about 2" per year. Foliage color and texture are key elements with new growth being soft to the touch and a beautiful blue-green. Over time it will develop a leader, producing a short dome shape. Provides great contrast with perennials, makes a nice groundcover for wildlife. Excellent for a rock garden, small entry ways, containers, or as a specimen. Discovered as a seedling growing in the forests of Vancouver Island, Brittish Columbia.
