A dwarf, densely branching upright selection of the evergreen Japanese Cedar with dark blackish-green mature foliage and soft green new growth. An excellent specimen plant and backdrop for lighter flowers and foliage. May grow vigorously to 4-6'H then growth slows and branching becomes denser when grown as a specimen. Also a good choice for low maintenance hedges and screens or bonsai.
