Cryptomeria japonica Sekkan Sugi
Sekkan Sugi Japanese Cedar, Golden Japanese Cedar krip-tow-ME-ri-a ja-PON-i-ka
- Upright, to 25 ft (7.6 m) tall, dense, leaves narrow and yellow to almost white at the tips.
- Hardy to USDA Zone 5
- Seems to be some confusion about this selection(s?), listed as both fast and slow growing. Perhaps some of the confusion can be attributed to insufficient attention in handling similar Japanese culivar names. Jacobson (1996) lists Sekka Sugi and Sekkwia Sugi as synonyms for the "warped and twisted" cultivar, Cristata; and that Sekkan Sugi may appear as Sekhan Sugi. van Gelderen and van Hoey Smith (1996, p 216) have a picture of a cultivar listed only as Sekkan.
