This is the commonly sold form of C. obtusa 'Mariesii'. This reversion has the same characteristics of C. obtusa 'Mariesii', except that it actually grows. In ten years, expect a 4' tall x 3' wide specimen. The growth is dark green and twisted with a scrumptious white frosting on top...probably provided by Betty Crocker...the one prior to the new revision.
