Sciadopitys verticillata 'Green Star'
A slow-growing evergreen conifer with a pyramidal form. Gray-green needles are blunt at the tips & shorter than the species, giving 'Green Star' a sturdy appearance. Prefers organic rich well-drained soil.
Sciadopitys verticillata 'Gruene Kugel'
An outstanding new selection from Germany noted for its compact well branched habit. Rounded in shape when young, developing slowly into a small compact tree with glossy deep green foliage year- round. Useful in gardens with limited space where the full sized Japanese Umbrella Pine is too large.
Sciadopitys verticillata 'Joe Kozey'
Narrower than the species, 'Joe Kozey' is an extraordinary cultivar that stands out from the rest. It withstands snow loads much better because its branches are sturdier & they are held more tightly to the trunk than other types. At maturity, the slow-growing Japanese Umbrella Pine becomes a large, spire-like tree.
Sciadopitys verticillata 'Sternschnuppe'
Straight as an arrow with strictly upward growing branches, this unique selection from Germany stands proud in the garden. Its succulent green needles are thick & broad creating a uniquely appealing texture. Somewhat brittle, it appreciates a little restraint through the winter months to guard against snow & ice damage.
