Sciadopitys verticillata 'Mitsch Select'

Sciadopitys verticillata 'Mitsch Select' (Sciadopitys verticillata (Japanese Umbrella Pine))

I've had this plant for 3-4 years now and it only grows a couple inches a year at best but it's a very nice variety. Usually this species will turn yellow or brown during our winters but this one does not discolor too badly and quickly turns back to a nice green as soon as Spring arrives. It was an expensive plant but well worth the money. It will only get about 3-4 feet tall and 4-5 feet wide.

Hi RK, It is a gem. An ancient tree that goes back to the time of the dinosaurs.
