Positive conifers On Mar 9, 2006, conifers from Rock Island, IL (Zone 5b) wrote:

A glaucous (blue) selection. Plants take on different forms due to locality, understock, and growing condititions. Stake for height. When grafted, you "may" have a plant as pictured. Also as seen from the photo, this cultivar seems to be yet another that starts its life as a groundcover and eventually throws up a leader providing upright growth later in it's life. Therefore, as pictured it could be allowed to grow "free range" or could be kept completley prostrate (ground hugging) by removing any upright growth the plant produces. Many people stake this as a younger plant for it's graceful narrow and tightly pendulous branches.
