This compact Japanese cedar selection seems similar to the cultivar Cryptomeria japonica 'Yellow Twig'. The compact, but airy growth forms an 72" tall x 7' wide clump in 9 years, but will eventually develop more of a central leader. We expect Cryptomeria 'Pom Pom' to mature in the 12'-15' tall range.
