Unique, attractive forms result when this otherwise prostrate weeping form is staked, so it is often seen trained to waist height or taller, which allows the dark green foliage to drape and cascade toward the ground. A dense mature specimen will have exposed trunk and branching that show off copper, brown and orange plated bark. Discovered as a seedling at Mitsch Nursery in 1965 in Aurora, OR, a dwarf conifer landmark! Tough and adaptable, it likes dry to average moisture.
