Although this incense cedar is one of the most sought after conifers of the south, it seems to perform much better in Czech climate thanks to cold and wet winters. It needs a lot of sun in summer though to keep its varigated leaves golden. Though, if the sun is not as hot as in the Mediterranean, for example, it benefits from additional watering from more frequent continental rain which helps it form a more compact and densely branched tree.

The scale-like leaves are similar to thujas and cypresses. They are arranged in two pairs. The basic colour is dark green and this variety has some leaves entirely rich yellow. After transplanting and the first winter mainly the yellow leaves may turn brown and even fall off which is just a temporary discomfort before it establishes. If this, however, happens to an established plant check for soil conditions (too dry or too wet.)

Incense cedar is widely soil adaptable but will look poor planted in too heavy soil. It grows relatively fast and can be pruned or trimmed in early spring. It is maintenance and disease free, with no pest problems. Do not let it dry out in winter. Water it well in dry, frost-free spells. Fully hardy to -24°C, can withstand temporary drop to -29°C.
