Cryptomeria japonica 'Sekkan Sugi'

Overall Description

This interesting variety of cryptomeria is also sometimes called 'Golden Curls'. Mainly because of its very distinct, bright yellow, weeping curls at the end of each branch. The rest of the tree is a nice bright light green. It is one of our favorite cryptomerias, and always an eye-catcher no matter where you plant it. Either full sun, or part shade will be fine for Sekkan Sugi, however you get the best color display in full sun. Makes a wonderful specimen tree.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
