Sciadopitys verticillata 'Joe Kozey'
Narrower than the species, Sciadopitys verticillata ‘Joe Kozey’ is an extraordinary cultivar that stands out from the rest. It withstands snow loads much better because its branches are sturdier and they are held more tightly to the trunk than other types. At maturity, the slow-growing Japanese Umbrella Pine becomes a large, spire-like tree. A selection from Sydney Waxman, University of Connecticut. Garden Size: 20’H x 6’W. Narrow, upright habit. Zone 5. Conifer.
