August – Cryptomeria Japonica ‘Yoshino’

Cryptomeria Japonica ‘Yoshino’, native to China and Japan, is considered the national tree of Japan and often used in shrines and throughout temples. It is also known as Japanese Cedar or Sugi. This lovely evergreen is fast-growing and has blue-green foliage that is soft to the touch and produces spherical fruiting cones. There is reddish brown peeling bark on its trunk, and it grows to about 30 to 40 feet tall. It thrives most in rich, moist and fertile soil that is acidic and well-drained. It is important to not allow its soil to dry out and should be kept in an area that is safe away from drying winter winds. During the winter months you will notice the leaves turning a slightly bronze color. When handling this plant, it is important to wear gloves and avoid contact with your skin due to slight skin irritation or allergic reactions that can occur. Springtime is the healthiest time to plant this beautiful evergreen. This low maintenance plant requires full sun, medium water and does not flower.
