Cryptomeria japonica 'Globosa Nana


Overall Description


Dense, dome shaped foliage consisting of very bright green needle-like sprays which tend to gracefully bow over as this plant matures. Has almost a droopy, "weeping" look - yet is very dense & compact in growth, and has a rather stiff, rigid feel despite this drooping type look. Truly an interesting plant. Works good as foundation plantings, or when planted in groups of 3 or 4. Very minimal bronzing in winter when compared to other Cryptomeria cultivars.


Plant Facts & Specifications


--Mature Height : 4 - 6 ft

--Mature Width : 5 - 6 ft

--Growth rate :
Moderate ( 6" - 8" avg per yr )

--Hardiness Zones :
5 - 9

--Sun Exposure :
Full sun to partial shade

--Soil Preference :
Average to slightly acidic - well drained. Mulching recommended

--Foliage Color & Texture :
Evergreen - Nice green colored foliage is typical of most Cryptomeria cultivars - very thick & pliable.....almost "rubbery". Heavy texture with good color retention in the winter months.

--Flower, Cone, Or Berry Facts :
Cones - perfectly round - approx 5/8" - 3/4" and have same color as the foliage until ripe. Unripe cones are covered with small bristle like growth until ripe. Once ripened, cones turn a coppery brown color and "open" or separate into several ( 8 - 10 ) portions, unveiling the small seeds contained within. Older expired cones will oftentimes remain attached to the tree for a year or more before finally falling off.

--Diseases / Insects :
Two types of Fungi - Pestalotia sp. and Phyllosticta sp. - have been occasionally discovered on browned off branches in several areas of the Southeast. Hard to say for sure if these fungi were the cause of the browning, or appeared after branch dieback had occurred. No other major pest / disease problems have been reported.

--Recommended Spacing :
3 - 3 1/2 ft apart recommended for hedge or mass plantings

--Deer Resistance Rating :
Lowest Resistance [ 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 ] Highest Resistance

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend POOPeas for use with all of our evergreen species. However, either water soluble (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ), or granular fertilizers ( Holly Tone is excellent ) are also good options. Most any granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio are also acceptable. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. POOPeas may be used at anytime.
