Hardy, compact evergreen tree with short, stiff, blue-green needles bearing sharp, pointy tips.  Needles are aromatic when crushed.  Mature needles develop a whitish bloom with age, hence the common name.  Produces cylindrical, light brown cones up to 2.5 inches long.  Tolerates drought and salt.  Provides shelter for songbirds and small mammals.

Note:  This year we are offering plugs rather than bare-root seedlings. Rooted in soil, plugs do not require immediate planting, have less transplant shock, and have a greater survival rate than bare-root seedlings.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Conifer plug orders are due March 15, 2023!
