Feathery foliage is green in summer and with the onset of cold weather turns a mahogany, bronze red in the late autumn and winter!
Cryptomeria japonica 'Elegans' Group is a selection with juvenile foliage, which is more needle-like and softer, hence the common name plume cedar. The foliage is green in summer and with the onset of cold weather turns a mahogany, bronze red in the late autumn and winter. It is the perfect backdrop to witchhazels, and red and yellow stemmed cornus. As a young plant is excellent in containers, particularly larger containers planted for winter. The soft texture combines well with other conifers that might be more stiff in appearance also good with Japanese maples. This cultivar was introduced from Japan in the mid 1800s. Prefers well-drained soil.
Goes well with Golden Full Moon Maple, japanese Irises and Variegated Hakone Grass. Check out our store for these great plants!
