These Half Standard Ball trees are perfect for planting in containers and decorating pathways.
Japanese Red Cedar is a very pretty evergreen shrub. It has bright green foliage that has a tint of yellow when young, before maturing to green with a tint of purple in the winter. Similar in appearance to some of GardenPlantOnline’s many topiary plants, the Japanese Red Cedar actually requires much less maintenance because of its slow growth-speed and it is also better suited to the British climate. These plants are sold as “Half Standard Balls” which refers to how the round shrubs have been grafted onto a bare-branched trunk.
All conifers are known for their hardiness and resilience against the elements. We often think of them being heavily covered with snow during the winter, but they can look equally as bold and impressive against a bright blue summer sky. Conifers get their name from the “cones” that they produce – which come in all shapes and sizes. Conifer leaves are evergreen and will either be needle-shaped or scale-like.
