Once you have seen the shimmery, icee green foliage of this conifer you will never forget it.  The Greenstead Magnificent was discovered in our humble town of Adelaide as a sport on a Cupressus macrocarpa. An excellent, low growing conifer with many applications.

The spring growth is a stunning frog green colour and turns buttercup yellow in the autumn before it drops its leaves for the winter months. A very handy plant to reflect the changes of season in tight spaces.
