Realizing that "dwarf" is a relative term, this superb, compact Japanese cedar grows to about 12' tall x 6' wide in 10 years with interesting whorls of densely congested, dark green foliage throughout the specimen. A mature plant resembles a partially melted green snowman sans the corncob pipe, button nose, and two eyes made out of coal...one of our favorite specimen plants.
