Planting instructions

You can plant your Cryptomeria ‘Globosa Nana’ Shrub in nearly any area that receives between four and eight hours of sunlight per day. The soil in the planting area should be relatively moist but well-draining. To plant this shrub, begin by digging a hole that is as deep as the root ball is tall and at least twice as wide. Backfill the hole while watering. To finish the job, cover the planting area with a layer of organic mulch.

Watering and nutrients

After planting your Cryptomeria ‘Globosa Nana’ Shrub, you should water it often enough to maintain consistent soil moisture during the establishment period. After establishment, you should water this plant whenever you notice that the first two inches of soil have dried out. At times, this can mean watering once per week or more, especially during hot weather and droughts. To feed this plant, apply a general-purpose fertilizer, such as one with a 10-10-10 nutrient blend, once per year during the early spring.


The Cryptomeria ‘Globosa Nana’ Shrub is a self-fertile plant, meaning that it can conduct pollination on its own without the need for a companion plant. As is the case for many evergreens, the Cryptomeria ‘Globosa Nana’ Shrub is also a coniferous plant. During spring, the male version of this plant’s cones will open to release their pollen. That pollen is light enough to travel via wind currents to the female cones. Once the pollen arrives at the female cone, a seed will develop within.


One convenient aspect of growing the Cryptomeria ‘Globosa Nana’ Shrub is that this plant can often survive with little to no pruning at all. Occasionally, you may need to prune to remove limbs that are dead, damaged or diseased. Otherwise, your Cryptomeria ‘Globosa Nana’ Shrub will likely develop a lovely shape and remain healthy even if you prune it minimally. If you do need to prune your Cryptomeria ‘Globosa Nana’ Shrub, it is best to do so during the spring months.

Pests, diseases, and animals

If you choose to grow the Cryptomeria ‘Globosa Nana’ Shrub in your yard, you can expect it to remain healthy throughout its life in nearly all cases. The Cryptomeria ‘Globosa Nana’ Shrub proves to be a shrub that has excellent pest and disease resistance, which makes the odds of infestation and infection quite low. Along with great pest and disease resistance, the Cryptomeria ‘Globosa Nana’ Shrub also comes with an amazing ability to resist deer browsing.

Achieving maximum results

The low need for maintenance and adaptability to many growing locations allows the Cryptomeria ‘Globosa Nana’ Shrub to work well in many planting schemes. Many gardeners use the Cryptomeria ‘Globosa Nana’ Shrub as a foundation plant to provide an everlasting source of greenery around their homes. Others plant multiple Cryptomeria ‘Globosa Nana’ shrubs to create a small hedge. As such, this plant not only looks great but can be functional as well, providing privacy, wind protection and curb appeal.


Is the Cryptomeria 'Globosa Nana' Shrub a fast-growing plant?

Overall, the Cryptomeria 'Globosa Nana' Shrub is not a fast-growing plant. Instead, it will have a slow to moderate growth rate throughout its life, regardless of whether or not you feed it each year. In a typical season, the Cryptomeria 'Globosa Nana' Shrub may add about 6 to 12 inches of new growth or less. This manageable rate ensures that this plant will not overtake others in your garden.

How large does the Cryptomeria 'Globosa Nana' Shrub grow?

The Cryptomeria 'Globosa Nana' Shrub typically grows to be about four to six feet tall at maturity. Throughout its life, this plant maintains a neat, rounded form, which means that the spread will typically match the height during all stages of life. The small overall size of the Cryptomeria 'Globosa Nana' Shrub further adds to this plant's adaptability to different growing locations, including those with limited growing space.

What is the best spacing for the Cryptomeria 'Globosa Nana' shrubs?

If you choose to grow your Cryptomeria 'Globosa Nana' shrubs as a hedge or in a massing, it is important to space each one properly. Since this plant reaches about four to six feet wide at maturity, you should typically use about four feet of spacing at planting time. However, if you want your hedge to fill in more quickly, it is ok to plant your Cryptomeria 'Globosa Nana' shrubs about three feet away from one another.
