Ornamental Features: Attractive blue foliage which emerges silvery blue in spring. The needles remain blue through the winter. Rough gray bark adds an interesting dimension to the landscape.

Landscape Attributes: Dense evergreen tree with a strong central leader. Distinctive and refined pyramidal form. Extremely hardy and rugged.
