Conifer with narrowly, columnar habit, very compact with upright branches which cover the plant starting at the base.

Serrated scaly leaves, silvery blue when the plant is young, later turning blue-grey. Prefers cool well drained soils, and tolerates repeated pruning so this plant is suitable for shaping.

Reaches 8-10m tall and 1-1.5m wide.
