A dwarf columnar variety of the Port Orford Cedar, this may have been a sport off of 'Ellwoodii'. The color of the juvenile foliage is a wonderful blue-gray. Growth habit is so compact, most of the time you cannot distinguish individual branches. An excellent choice for a tree that is columnar in form, but doesn't grow too large. These trees are grafted onto a special Disease Resistant rootstock, so they can be grown successfully in climates that are often susceptible to these problems. Dr. Everett Hansen at Oregon State University has developed this Phytophthora lateralis resistant rootstock, and is commonly used to graft certain species, like Chamaecyparis lawsoniana onto.
