A cultivar of a Chinese native used for timber, 'Flaky' is so named for its rich red-brown, papery, exfoliating bark, but its tight, upright purple cones (beginning red-violet) are equally noteworthy. Rising to 10 feet in 10 years with about a 4 foot in width, eventually it will be a very tall tree to approximately 70 feet. Needles are short and stout, blue-green with silver undersides. Narrowly conical, it has a somewhat loose branch arrangement.

Minimum temperature: -20° F
