Cryptomeria japonica Spiralis is a wonderful dwarf form of the Japanese cedar. It’s shoots are covered in smooth needles that curve around them, creating the appearance of smooth rope. The whole plant is bright lime green. Our stock plants are about twenty years old and about 1m high by 1.5m wide. Prefers to be in the ground than a pot, it will take a pot but turns rusty brown if it runs out of food! never looks much as a young plant, but repays patience and my older plants here get many comments.
