SUN OR SHADE: This conifer requires full to part shade and protection from afternoon sun
SIZE: In 10 years, Moon Frost will reach 3 feet in height and 4 feet in width. It rarely grows beyond 4-feet tall except in the wild over long periods of time.
SEE IT: At the WSU Snohomish County Master Garden Demonstration Garden at Jennings Memorial Park, 6915 Armar Road, Marysville.
