Give this Evergreen shrub lots of room to spread (see size). The bluish gray-green stems of this shrub are jointed, grow upright and retain year round attractiveness. The yellow pollen and seed cones produced in the spring are barely noticeable. If the shrub is female, the seed cones will mature to about 1/3″ diameter bright red fleshy cones that are consumed by birds.
