    Hi,

    I offered my sister this conifer because I thought it was a dwarf plant like the ones you can use in a rock garden. When I bought it it had no tag, it was just a cheap 15 cm plant from a batch sold as "various conifers".

    But a couple of years later, it's already 1m50 tall, and since I don't know the species, I don't know if I can tell her to keep it or remove it.

    Here are a few pictures:

    Cupressus of some sort, maybe Cupressus macrocarpa. Could easily reach 20-30 m tall.

    Oops! That's what I suspected. Thanks Michael.
