I purchased this plant for my fairy garden, but have been unable to find complete information about it. The tag only states that it is hardy to zone 2, globe shaped, and growth rate of less tan 1" per year. Even the developer's web site lists only that information! It is a very cute true miniature pine. Mine is 3 1/2" tall by 5" wide now. I hope the growth rate is accurate!
