We first saw this unusual form of Thujopsis dolobrata at Joann Currier's The Unique Plant Nursery. The very thick, plastic-like foliage gives the appearance of a ploidy mutation (extra chromosomes). For us, it grows a bit slower than typical Thujopsis dolobrata, so we're guessing it should reach about 8' tall in 10 years, sporting the typical pyramidal shape. Joann originally got the plant from Randy Plante at Greener Visions Nursery, who got it from NC conifer nurseryman Geoff Driscoll, who got it from someone up north. That's where the trail goes cold.
