It neither abides air pollution of urban and populated areas nor salt spray, but given the right environment and enough room to grow, this conifer will become a magnificent specimen.
*It is native to DC; to MD’s northern counties and those surrounding DC; and throughout PA. It is adventive in DE. In VA, it is infrequent in the Piedmont and rare in the Coastal Plain.
