This is one of my favorite conifers... I actually say that to all the plants. C. obtusa 'Graciosa' was a 1965 introduction from Konijn Nursery in Holland, who found the sport on a branch of C. obtusa 'Nana Gracillis'. C. o. 'Graciosa' is much faster growing, with a wonderful, lacy, green snowflake pattern foliage. In ten years, expect a 10' tall specimen with a width of 30".
