That looks attractive, don't no anything about them, is it slow growing or fussy about position ?

This is popular slowly growing evergreen . 8' in 10 years they say but eventually will grow to 25'. I am afraid I am not going to be here to see it. They also say that grow poorly in heavy clay soils.
Mine is only baby at 2 and half feet. I think it likes sun. I bought it for it's cones. They are very distinctive feature and also beautiful silvery (underside) twisted needles.
This cultivar was introduced in Germany in 1986 by Gunter Horstmann.
