Chapel View Japanese Cedar

Cryptomeria japonica 'PIICJ-I'

Chapel View Cryptomeria evergreen in the landscape

With its broad pyramidal habit yet compact form, this lovely evergreen fits beautifully in small space gardens. A 12-year-old specimen was 7′ in height and 5′ in width, and can be readily pruned to maintain a desirable landscape size. The blue-green needles are resistant to winter bronzing and add a touch of color to the winter landscape.
