Cryptomeria japonica 'Birodo'

Birodo Japanese Cedar

Short, erect, green needles, like the points of a star, cover the tight branches of the slow-growing and dense Cryptomeria japonica ‘Birodo’. As cold weather sets in, the foliage gradually changes to a rich, bronze-purple for winter. Tough, trouble free and resistant to grazing animals, ‘Birodo’ is an excellent addition to raised garden beds and other close-up spaces, where its character can be seen easily. It will maintain a tight, formal habit without shearing. Protect from desiccating winter winds.
