Tansu Japanese Cedar - Cryptomeria japonica 'Tansu'

Regular price $24.99

A charmer for the miniature garden and a pleasure to grow. The Tansu Dwarf Japanese Cedar first grows into a broad pyramid shape that tends to lean to one side creating a aged wind-swept look that can lend itself to a variety of miniature gardening styles and themes. As it gets older, the canopy evens out and it takes on the look of a majestic tree - in miniature.

The foliage is a beautiful light to medium green that turns bronze in the winter - called a 'winter blush'. As the canopy ages, the tips of the foliage droop down a little, and looks terrific in the miniature garden.

The Tansu Japanese Cedar is an attractive little tree that won't disappoint even the most discerning miniaturist. It's our most favorite Cryptomeria for miniature gardening. Perfect for a partly shaded spot with evenly damp soil.
