Dwarf Japanese Cedar (Cryptomeria japonica 'Globosa Nana'). A superb selection that retains a neat, dense mound with little care. Enjoy as a single specimen or group as a filler. Fine-textured foliage breaks up the bold effects of large-leaved plants. Foliage becomes rusty red in winter. Evergreen. Slowly forms a dense dome 2 to 3 ft. tall, slightly wider; 4 to 8 ft. tall with age.
Picea pungens var. glauca 'Gebelle's Golden Spring' lights up the back yard. It's a Colorado Blue Spruce most of the year, like its cousin to the right, the straight species Picea pungens. In the foreground is a dwarf prostrate White (or Concolor) Fir.
