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

This blue-growing selection is an Intermediate Grower developing between 6"-12" per year depending on locality, climate, and vigor of understock. It should stay under 12" in height during it's lifetime but with age may become a bit taller. This plant is a groundcover selection unless staked at which then it will become somewhat rounded with rambling growth reverting back to it's original prostrate habit (low and spreading).
