The Tenzan Japanese Cedar is a remarkable miniature plant, and the smallest form of Japanese cedar in the world. It grows into a very dense, green mound of tiny branches and needles, just 6 inches tall and 8 inches wide after 10 years. This jewel deserves a special place – perhaps in a pocket among rocks, or in a trough or planter with other miniature bushes. You don’t even need a garden, since plants like this can be grown in window boxes and on balconies in a pot. Create a miniature garden in a tray or box, using other small plants, rocks, ornaments and gravel, perhaps to display in your Japanese courtyard.

  • Amazing miniature mound of dense green needles
  • Just a few inches tall – the smallest of all the Japanese cedars
  • Special plant for pockets among rocks
  • Perfect for planters, troughs and pots
  • Easily grown with some basic care

The Tenzan Japanese Cedar should be grown in full sun, but with some shelter from the hottest sun in summer. It will grow in zone 7, and in zone 6 with a little winter protection. It grows best in moist, well-drained soil, and in pots in a mixture of one-half garden soil and one-half acid-plant potting soil, with some added sand or gravel. Although small, this plant is not very hard to grow, and it is unlikely to be bothered by pests or diseases.
