This very popular conifer has bright lime/yellow foliage and an upright narrow shape. In summer, its foliage is lemon scented particularly when cut or brushed. It’s quite vigorous, growing by 30-60cm per annum and will grow up to 5m in height but is happy to be kept lower.
Plant in any moist but well-drained soil in full or partial shade. Can tolerate hot sunny sites, but protect from strong winds. If used for hedging, plant 60-90cm apart.
