Positive braun06 On Jan 27, 2014, braun06 from Peoria Heights, IL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This cultivar is one of artistic character and dense foliage. This plant is more upright than Torulosa aka 'Hollywood.' The foliage is attractive and has a hint of silver to the good green color. Locally in a zone 5 winter, Robusta Green performs best next to Spartan Juniper, and Emerald Arborvitae for more grass green color through extreme cold.
