We have a pair of these graceful trees framing a wide arch over one of the central paths of our garden. The arch supports clematis and roses and we wanted evergreens which are slow growing and narrow on either side. Because we especially liked the look of these Japanese cedars, they were our first choice. One feature we are fond of is their young tip growth which is creamy yellow. In the winter, when the clematis and roses have finished their show, the tip growth turns even paler and the two Cryptomeria j. `Sekkan Sugi' become an even more pronounced focal point in the garden.
