Very nice dwarf form and a great variety for zone 5. Holds dark green color even through winter. I've read 2-4' tall and 3-5' wide, it has a leader when young but looks more rounded with maturity. Growth rate is listed at 3-5" a year but mine has never grown that fast.

Very slow growing with a nice shape. May burn a little if exposed to wind but otherwise has good color year-round.
