Quick Overview:

Cryptomeria japonica, commonly called Japanese cedar or sugi, is a slender, pyramidal, evergreen conifer with tiered horizontal branching, which is slightly pendulous at the tips. Japanese cedar is a monotypic genus unrelated to the true cedars (Cedrus). Foliage is soft to the touch and may bronze in cold winters. Spherical fruiting cones (to 1″ diameter) appear at the shoot ends. Reddish-brown bark exfoliates in strips. ‘Sekkan-sugi’ has intense golden yellow foliage in spring and summer and cannot be ignored!! Brilliant cream-to-sulphur-yellow needles make this medium-sized pyramid a real eye-catcher!… even from a distance. Yellow needles have white tips in winter.
