This older cultivar is much used for ground cover.
An easily grown plant, it succeeds in hot dry soils and in poor soils.Succeeds in most soils so long as they are well drained Sandy to heavy clay.

Rather dull bronze-green in winter, dark green with brownish stems in summer, branches thin and densely arranged, needles 5-8 mm, and its foliage is soft to the touch.

Discovered in Ireland
