Use this fast-growing conifer to make outstanding, creative plant sculptures. Trained as silvery blue elephants, bears, sea serpents or whacky shapes, the long, whiplike, feathery branches fill in with fluffy, needle-like foliage. Cultivated since 1923, the broad, upright shrub maintains a moderate size, but requires semi-annual pruning to redefine its billowy, irregular forms and encourage new blue growth. Use as a specimen, topiary or high interest addition to rock garden, foundation or mixed bed.
