Dwarf Japanese Cedar
Hardy Evergreen with Year-Round Interest
Your Dwarf Japanese Cedar, Cryptomeria japonica 'Globosa Nana', is one of those delightful shrubs that just demands to be touched.
Dwarf Japanese Cedar is a low-growing variety of Cryptomria. These would look terrific on either side of your entry or provide a lovely hedge along your sidewalk.
Bright to dark green foliage adorns this evergreen shrub year round, taking on a spicy, bronze tint for autumn. The needle-like sprays seem to reach out and over, presenting the appearance of movement in your landscape.
You won’t be able to walk by it without extending your hand for a gentle stroke over its soft foliage. Diminutive, 3/4-inch cones appear like tiny decorations on your Cedar, their reddish-brown coloring a gentle contrast against the evergreen foliage.
Dwarf Japanese Cedar will grow up to 5 feet in height with an equal spread. The dense foliage creates a tight mound that manages itself quite well, but is also amenable to pruning if you decide to alter its shape and size. It’s long-lived, growing for 30 years or more.
Regardless of the name, this specimen is actually in the Cypress family and full size varieties can reach up to 60 feet tall. This dwarf version, Cryptomeria 'Globosa Nana', is a terrific opportunity to have one of these delightful shrubs in your yard without the need for extensive space.
