Design IdeasThis is an excellent specimen plant that is often incorporated into Asian gardens or featured in natural water gardens. Its uniquely trained form fits into very difficult spaces and makes an ideal focal point for courtyards and entry gardens with naturalistic landscaping. Most often planted with boulders and other rock accents or pagoda lights. Brings interest to snow-covered gardens.
Care Information
