A dwarf Japanese cedar that develops a dense, irregular mounded habit of tightly congested growth. In spring, the needles emerge with a rich yellow glow that glistens against a backdrop of older green needles. As the season progresses the foliage evolves to crisp green tones. The slow growing plants average 2-4" of growth annually reaching 3' high and wide over many years. An excellent choice for rock gardens, container accent or as an edger at the front of a sun-drenched border.
