Totem is a slender and tall conifer which is native to the Mediterranean and shapes the landscape of many Mediterranean countries like Italy. In the UK & Ireland, this evergreen conifer can be planted in groups as a very attractive screen and it is also extremely effecting for lining a driveway or for courtyard planting. The mid-dark green foliage is densely packed on the tree to form a neat and columnar shape and the foliage has a wonderfully fresh fragrance to it. This is a great choice for adding colour to your garden all year round, and it works particularly well as a structural conifer in a Mediterranean style garden.
