Needs plenty of space to grow, away from sidewalks or buildings.
A strikingly beautiful conifer with blue to blue-green needles that grow in clusters. An exceptionally blue tree was the original cultivar found in the Atlas Mountains in North Africa. Juvenile trees tend to have a pyramidal form, older trees tend to become flat topped with horizontal or ascending branching. Branching starts low to the ground. Does not need pruning.
Sandy loam, well drained. Will tolerate heavier soil but needs well cultivated soil so that the roots are not hampered.
