Grannies' Ringlets

A interesting conifer with a lively enticing look - a fantastic texture to add to the garden.

Cryptomeria 'Spiralis' is a Japanese variety of cedar with wedged shaped needles that spiral around each branch, creating an unique look that is also highly desirable. As a young plant it can appear a little ragged but it soon grows into a slender dome, eventually maturing to a tall cone shape that can reach over 6m high. Foliage remains bright green throughout the year giving it a lush and luxuriant feel, both at the height of summer and in the bleakness of mid-winter. Plant in a mixed conifer border, as a specimen on its own or in a rock or gravel garden with the leading shoots removed to retain the dwarf shape. Needing very little in the way of maintenance or pruning this untidy starter can be left to grow into a graceful shrub that will be treasured for years to come.

Year round interest and a striking look means this is a conifer that cant be missed.

Plant Care & Advice

Cryptomeria 'Spiralis' can be grown in full sun or partial shade but needs a sheltered spot to grow well with protection from wind.  Best grown in a South, West or East facing aspect with high light levels and good amounts of sunshine.

For best results plant in a moist but free draining soil, this Cryptomeria will tolerate most types of soil. This tree works well in a rock garden or gravel garden if kept small, also good as a specimen tree on its own or planted in a mixed border amongst others.

Water well in the first growing season and feed occasionally but once established no further care should be needed.  Pruning is not required but can be done to keep in bounds, Cryptomeria will regrow if hard cut back and so can be renovated if needed.
