Cryptomeria

Cryptomeria trees are large conifers of pyramidal to conical habit. When mature, the Japanese Cedar has beautiful burgundy, peeling bark. Distinctive foliage is bright green and spirally leaf-like needles that closely resemble ropes. The leaves bronze over in the autumn and winter and spiral around the branches. The first needles that appear in the spring tend to be very short compared to later produced needles.

The globe-shaped cones are mostly borne in clusters in autumn. A slow growing tree. Superb plants for foliage.

Best when planted in a well-drained, moist soil. No pruning is required to maintain it’s attractive form. Needs protection from spring frost and exposed areas, particularly the tree is young.
