You'll want nothing more than to reach out and touch this compact, conical, slow growing evergreen with its dense yet graceful foliage and soft, fernlike branching. This sport of 'Boulevard' features leaves that are bright green on top and flecked with silver-blue on the underside and, while having some of the great texture of 'Boulevard', it has none of the disease problems that can plague that selection. Soft Serve® requires little pruning and thrives in full sun to partial shade. It prefers moist, well drained soils and some protection from the harshest of winter winds and sun for its optimum appearance.
