It almost looks like a young Norfolk Island Pine tree (Araucaria heterophylla).

Beautiful cones.

The cones are what is most attractive on this tree. They start purplish blue and change to tan as they mature.

I found this tree very showy.... with nice green needles/leaves-white beneath and handsome blue cones .

This is similar to mine. It's over 20 yrs old and very slow growing. It has shot up 2 foot since last year for some reason. It's now about 9 foot. I could easily wrap the Christmas lights round it before but this year I'm going to struggle the get the top one on. I just love it's blue cones and this year there are dozens of them. I noticed a type of catkin on it for the first time this spring too.

Thank you for the information. I am glad to hear that it is a slow grower. I just bought it this spring and it is only 3 maybe 4' Ideally, I would like to see it 10 feet in 15 years. After that it probably would not matter to me :-)
