Low spreader with cedar-like texture. Feathery green foliage in summer turns coppery-brown in fall. Grows well in shade and part shade. Intolerant of wet soils. A UBC introduction from the Botanical Garden. An interesting groundcover for a border.

Prefers a moist well drained soil. Water regularly as needed. Feed in spring with an all purpose fertilizer prior to new spring growth. Little pruning is necessary. Prune broken or damaged limbs.
