(Japanese Umbrella-pine, Wintergreen Umbrella-pine)

With long, flat needles arranged like radial spokes, the slow-growing Japanese umbrella-pine is an unusual but picturesque tree. From Japan, this evergreen is dense and compact when young and becomes more open with age, attaining a pyramidal shape that can be either tall and narrow or slightly rounded. Its bark is attractive, but since hidden by the foliage, the exfoliating plates and strips of reddish gray-brown are rarely enjoyed.

Grandiflora

(Arborvitae Fern, Spike Moss, Sweat Fern)

Spikemoss or sweat fern is a low, tuft-forming, evergreen perennial native to Central Amercia, southern North America, and Cuba. Neither a fern nor a moss, it bears frond-like stems - resembling arborvitae foliage - that are light green above and silver underneath. It also sometimes produces stems terminating in spore-bearing "cones". Spikemoss thrives in moist, humus-rich soil and shade. It makes a good pot plant or ground cover for a shady, humid site.

(Pond Cypress)

Valued for its narrow conical habit, its showy fall color, and its adaptability, this deciduous conifer is native to the Southeast United States. Its short horizontal branches bear mossy erect branchlets clad in clasping soft bright green needles. The needles turn a rich golden yellow to orange-red in autumn before dropping to form a soft, natural mulch. The buttressed trunk has exfoliating bark that shreds in red-brown and gray strips, providing winter interest. Small round green cones cluster at...
