Comments: A globose selection with light blue, coarse needles and is dwarf-like when under 10-15 years of age. It will eventually form a leader to give it more of a mounding upright habit. Will grow to a height of 20 feet and more when mature. Is drought tolerant when established and has fair tolerance to deer.
