Cryptomeria japonica 'Tenzan Yatsabusa', although virtually unpronounceable, is one of the finest dwarf Japanese cedars for the rock garden. In 10 years, the tiny mound of congested dark green foliage, which resembles cryptomeria branches that have been run through a meat grinder, forms a 30" tall x 3' wide (in 10 years) windswept form. Cryptomeria 'Tenzan Yatsabusa' is similar in spread, but much more flattened than Cryptomeria japonica 'Compressa' or Cryptomeria 'Vilmoriniana'.
