A most handsome Japanese Cedar that is considered a dwarf tree as it will only be 8-10 ft tall in 10 years. The soft green needles lie close to the branches like a braid, and in spring the new growth is a bright green, contrasting to the bronze-purple winter foliage. Stunning! This is one of the best for screening as it is dense and full, blocking off any unsightly view, and providing privacy. Hardy to zone 7.
