    Noteworthy Characteristics

    To say that this cryptomeria has even a tough of real yellow to the foliage would be stretching the truth. But just because someone named it improperly doesn't mean it's not a great plant! The new twigs of this dwarf Japanese Cedar are brushed VERY lightly with a chartreuse yellow in spring; then they change to and stay bright green the rest of the year, without bronzing in winter. Short, finely textured foliage, gathered randomly in clusters at the crown make a very attractive, upright, pyramidal shrub that makes for a striking focal point. Slow growing.

    Culture & Care Tips

Feed in spring with a well-balanced, slow-release shrub and tree fertilizer. Drought tolerant when established however provide enough water to keep the soil moist but not soggy wet during the first growing season.
