Hi,
I posted this already but the pic' was woeful.I have tried again and hopefully this will be better.
The tree is about 5 feet tall and the branches have a "Fern" look .The pines are soft and not sharp.Again its the growth rate and mature height I need.
Thanks for viewing and hopefully someone can help.

Thanks for all replies --It is identical to the picture of the tree on the right . Very Happy
I think it was a good price at 19 euro and really hope this one won't die on me.

One of the crested form of Crytomeria japonica as already stated. The ones that I have seen (not this one) are about 2m after 20 yrs. or so.

Hi ,
This was identical looking to the picture posted --But--I contacted the shop and got the number of the supplier.
I sadly found out that this is a Norfolk Island Pine and is really an indoor plant over here .They grow them in pots so that they can be used each year as a Christmas tree.
I have already planted it out --so I will just see how it goes as I haven't the space for it indoors.
