A Shade Loving Wind Break

  • Handsome Evergreen Foliage
  • Shade Tolerant
  • Hardy & Easy Care
  • Fluffy Texture & Winter Color

Do you love the look of Leyland Cypress but have had bad luck with them because your property has too much shade? Cryptomeria Yoshino will help you out.

Perhaps you have visited a Japanese garden and wondered how they get the feeling that you're totally surrounded by nature, no matter where the garden is located? Cryptomeria Yoshino also know as Yoshino Japanese Cedar is the answer. This strong grower provides a tall, dense, evergreen screen along the edges of many famous gardens.

A lot of the charm of this graceful evergreen is its great texture and color. The summer color is glistening blue-green, but the needle-like leaves turn a bronzy-purple winter hue, especially when exposed to cold winds.

The tree grows into a coveted tall pyramidal shape, but has an almost "fluffy" look to it that has to be seen to be appreciated. And these trees grow fast!

It will grow well in either sun or shade and tolerates many different soil types. It doesn't need fussing or pruning and just wants a little springtime fertilizer. Leave the branches all the way to the ground to keep the classic form.

The Cryptomeria Yoshino tree makes a great specimen by itself, but is even more impressive in a row. Order yours today!
