This glorious conifer constitutes the sole member of both its genus and plant family. It is without peer in its beauty. On a mature specimen, its rich needles compose an unrivaled sculpture of form, texture, and colour. The foliage develops a bronzy tint in winter. While it often grows to 9 meters (27 feet) height in cultivation and 27 meters (90 feet) in the wild, its slow-growing nature requires patience!
