A relatively fast grower, reaching approximately 5m in the first 10 years. Mid green horizontal branchlets droop slightly and the lush, cedar scented foliage is flat and dense in habit making it ideal for creating a privacy screen or windbreak in a small space as it will reach a width of only 1.5 metres. It has a compact conical, upright growth habit and responds well to pruning, even reshooting from bare wood after a hard prune.
