We know Dow Whiting and are working with him and Linda on landscaping our home. This was a must have shrub and it serves as the anchor plant to one of the beds in front of our home. When coming down the street it is and will be the first shrub you see and it eventually (when mature) will soften the corner of the home.

This soft, graceful evergreen has lovely color, too.
A compact, conical falsecypress with graceful, soft fern-like branches. The leaves are bright green on top and flecked with silver-blue on the underside. This sport of 'Boulevard' is a great substitute for Dwarf Alberta Spruce.
