Landscape Attributes:
Lobbii Dwarf Japanese Cedar is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub
with a mounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from
other landscape plants with less refined foliage.
This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should not require
much pruning, except when necessary, such as to remove dieback.
It has no significant negative characteristics.
Lobbii Dwarf Japanese Cedar is recommended for the following
landscape applications;
- Mass Planting
- General Garden Use
- Rock/Alpine Gardens
- Container Planting
Plant Characteristics:
Lobbii Dwarf Japanese Cedar will grow to be about 4 feet tall at
maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground
and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It
grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to
live for 40 years or more.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and
shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is particular about its soil conditions, with a strong preference for rich,
acidic soils, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is quite intolerant of urban pollution, therefore
inner city or urban streetside plantings are best avoided, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively
sheltered location. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed
locations or colder zones.
This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
