Globe Cryptomeria (Cryptomeria japonica ‘Globosa Nana’) is an amazing bowling-ball shaped evergreen that is a staple in landscapes all over Atlanta because it requires no shearing. (The normal shape on Japanese Cryptomeria is a large pyramidal evergreen somewhat like an arborvitae.) During the winter, cryptomeria change from medium-green to bronze-green.
