A fast growing conifer with a dark geen evergreen upright foliage. A great feature tree found in Japanese style gardens. Also suitable for group planting as a formal screen. Dense growth habit with small green berries. Great for topiary as it responds well to pruning. Prefers moist well drained soils in full sun or part shade. A good low maintenance choice. Quite a slow grower.
Can be used as a tidy dense hedge
