Facing a southwest exsposure in zone 8 and full sun. During fall into winter the foliage is bronzed then spring changes to a beautiful chartruse to creamy yellow hue which seems to glow during the mid-summer day. Here are a few photos from 2007 - 2008.

I first saw this plant at the Oregon Garden. I have been growing it in a pot for several years and it is has visual interest all year round. It has spherical cones that sprout small branches, and also tiny ovoid cones. I will try to post a photo and see if anyone else has had a plant with these characteristics.
