Cryptomeria trees (Cryptomeria japonica) are also known as Japanese cedars and are closely related to bald cypress and redwood trees. In cold winter temperatures, the dark green needles will blush to purplish bronze. Beautiful as a singular specimen or planted in pots for a topiary effect. In the UK it is quickly becoming an alternative to less hardy topiary plants
