A 10 year old specimen of this 1923 English introduction from Red Lodge Nursery will make a bun about the size and shape of a well rooted basketball. The congested dark green foliage, similar to C. obtusa 'Nana', is slightly more open in form... great for landscaping a rock garden or the NBA hall of fame.
