Cryptomeria (Japanese Cedar)

Native to Japan where it is revered as the national tree, the genus Cryptomeria is valued for its stately grandeur and superior, fragrant wood. Although only one species exists (Cryptomeria japonica), Iseli Nursery offers a diverse collection of cultivars that provide many varying habits, unique textures, sizes, and colors for all sized landscapes. Cryptomeria, commonly called Japanese Cedar, prefers ample moisture, tolerates partial shade, and appreciates protection from cold desiccating winds.
