(This plant is NOT on the Australian Noxious Weed List)
An evergreen, tall tree endemic to Japan and not a Cedar at all, but a Cypress of family Cupressaceae (syn Taxodiaceae).
A very long-lived tree known to live 1000 years, its stem is straight and slender with reddish-brown bark which sheds in strips; the leaves are light green in summer turning reddish-brown in autumn; the greenish flowers and globular cones appear in terminal clusters.
The Japanese Cedar prefers moist soils in a sunny position and does not like drought nor frost. Selected cultivars have been grown in China for 1000 years for timber production while there are a host of dwarfed ornamental cultivars available.
This tree makes an excellent bonsai candidate.
Offered is a packet of 25 seeds and Grownotes to assist you in propagation.
