This fast-growing, irregular upright selection of Cryptomeria makes a truly unique specimen plant. Our ten year old plants are now 20' in height. The open, upright, see-through branching structure has a wonderful oriental feel. Each branch has short rubbery-needles that spirally twist themselves around the branch. I would grow this cryptomeria just to have cool foliage for arrangments.
