Globosa Nana Dwarf Cryptomeria
Cryptomeria japonica 'Globosa Nana'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 6a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 6a, where this Cryptomeria variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring. Requires a well-lit space for overwintering indoors.



Special Attributes

With a texture unmatched by few other shrubs, 'Globosa Nana' is a highly attractive evergreen shrub that needs no pruning to achieve its naturally rounded shape. But what really makes it so perfect is the vibrant shade of green and the fullness of the worm-like mini branches, which contrasts remarkably well with almost any other plant. During the cool season the foliage takes on a bronze cast. Globosa Nana is somewhat slow growing - maybe to 3 feet tall and wide in 10 years - but the color and feel of the plant makes it an extra special addition to any garden.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a rounded mound to about 4 to 5 feet tall and wide, the Dwarf Global Cryptomeria is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or as a hedge in landscape borders. That said, in design, we probably use it more in home foundation plantings than anywhere else. Plant one on both sides of the front door or steps or on both sides of a walkway or drive to accentuate these entryways. Also makes a very nice solo or centerpiece in containers of 14 inches or more in diameter. A fine addition to conifer gardens, Asian theme gardens, and rock gardens.

Suggested Spacing:  3 feet apart for solid hedges; 6 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Dwarf Global Cryptomeria is very easy to grow in most any average, moist but well-drained soil and full sun to part shade. Prefers not to dry out when young however is quite drought tolerant when established. The plant never needs pruning. We've seen no serious disease or insect problems and the deer that visit our gardens won't touch it. Can be pruned for size control or shaping purposes though we never touch ours.
