We are finally able to offer one of my favorite Japanese cedars. Each intensely dark green branch appears as though it has a narrow green spring winding its way around each stem... sort of like green barber poles (for you older folks who remember such)! This is very different from and has much thicker branches than C. japonica 'Spiraliter Falcata'. Although slow growing, it should reach 6' tall x 4' wide in 10 years.
