Cryptomeria japonica 'Elegans Nans' is a dwarf Japanese cedar with congested, dense, dark green growth that gives a soft appearance with a pleasing, free-spirited a juniper on LSD...the life of a garden party! The mature shape of Cryptomeria japonica 'Elegans Nana' resembles that of a 7' tall x 7' wide (in 15 years) bean bag chair. Just like folks with good digestion, it never needs pruning.
