Jurassic Park Thujopsis. Unlike other selections of this species which have a more shrub-like growth habit, 'Jurassic Park' develops into a stately compact conical form. It is not a fast grower, and because of its thicker needles, some authorities think that it may have extra chromosomes. Still rare in cultivation, this plant is a must for the conifer collector. To quote Tony Avent at Plant Delights nursery: "We first saw this unusual form of Thujopsis dolabrata at Joann Currier's The Unique Plant Nursery. Joann originally got the plant from Randy Plante at Greener Visions Nursery, who got it from NC conifer nurseryman Geoff Driscoll, who got it from someone up north. That's where the trail goes cold." Wow! What a mystery. If you know more, let us know. Some think that it may get to 8' in 10 years which is the case at Juniper Level Botanical Garden.
