Mushroom Japanese Cedar - Cryptomeria japonica 'Mushroom'

Regular price $14.99

The Mushroom Cryptomeria, or Mushroom Japanese Cedar, is an unusual conifer with very different texture to add to your miniature garden trees and a true pleasure to grow. Doesn't need a lot of pruning at all - just keep any wayward growth in check if you like. The delicate, airy branches would be perfect in a fairy garden. 

The summer colors are light greens on pretty light-pink stems. The winter color changes to dramatic russet and mahogany tones in the colder temperatures AND it's deer resistant.

Best in a partly shaded or cool-sun spot with evenly damp soil. The part shade will help keep the soil evenly damp.

It's a little faster growing than most of our trees but perfect for the backdrop or screen at the back of your miniature garden.
