Main asset

Un petit conifère très rustique, solide, vert toute l'année, parfait en rocaille ou en conteneur. Plante bonsaifiable.


The plant does not require maintenance and keeps its round shape alone. It can be pruned in cloud or bonsai, in this case shorten the young shoots ("candles") before the needles grow in the spring.
