This coniferous tree is a distinctive genus of evergreen tree that is native to northern China and Korea. It has bright green scale-like leaves that are darker on older trees, 1" cones, and many cultivated varieties that are often shrubby, with tiered branches.

Platycladus orientalis is associated with long life and vitality in Buddhist thought in China, where it is used in Buddhist temples for construction work and chipped for incense burning. Platycladus orientalis 'Compacta' is easy to care for and thrives in full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. It can grow up to 8-12 ft tall and 1.5 ft in trunk diameter, making it ideal for smaller gardens or urban landscapes.
