As a compact evergreen conifer, it will grow upright, with a wide conical and somewhat contorted habit. This should help to add interest. It likes full sun to part shade and could grow to 3-8' tall 2-3' wide if left unchecked. However, I plan to cut it back and shape it over time, assuming it survives. I have had trouble with this spot in the past, mostly from animals eating the plants I place here. I am hoping that they will not be interested in this Cypress (deer are unlikely to get into this area of the garden.
In time, I think it will look good just behind the lantern.
