Posted by 26.10. 2007 11:13:33 (15795 readers)

Acrocona is a delightful small evergreen conifer for lovers of special and interesting small trees. A broad pyramid attracting attention with its special feature - the blood red extra large cones on the terminals of many branches. These emerge upright, bright red-purple, then droop downward as they turn a clean tan.

The growing foliage is smooth-textured, bright green and later becomes darker. It prefers to grow in full sun. Drought-tolerant and suitable for xeriscaping. In 10 years reaches the height and width of 1.2-1.5m, maturing at height of 2.5m. Very cold hardy - zone 3–7 (to -37 degrees C). Suitable for all good soils with pH between 5.6 and 7.5, dislikes only shallow chalky or very dry sites. It has average water needs - water it regularly but do not overwater. Ideally planted as a delightful specimen on most visible spots, perhaps in a rock garden, or near a patio.
