    • Bought 2 of these for either side of our entrance last summer. Their yellowish color plays well with the greens of other evergreens we planted nearby. They survived our cold winter. They currently get part sun and seem happy. My only "complaint" is I've read they are slow growers, and I wish they grew faster! I'm looking forward to a larger height - currently they are about 1.5' tall. I'm sure they will look amazing in 5 years, but right now they look small. I'll just have to be patient. If you don't want to wait, consider buying a more mature plant.
