The photo shows Swane's Gold as being pyramidal rather than columnar. Which is it?
How rapidly does it grow per annum?
What is cost?
I am looking for columnar conifers of mid-green colour to hide a brick wall 3m tall. I do not want pyramids; I do want pencil-shape. I need narrow width pencils as well since space between our windows and wall is only 4m
