One of our favorites, this overlooked upright conifer is informally conical with semi-pendulous branches and foliage that changes from blue to grey to a gold thread cypress on Prozac. Every now and then it does a Dr. Jekyll thing, and sends out a branch or two of gold thread cypress...definitely schizoid! Our 10 year old plant is 14' tall x 7' wide.
