The irregular branching habit and cream colored new growth make this easy to grow conifer a great choice for adding some texture to the border. Be sure to wear garden gloves when cultivating Hikari as its needles are quite sharp. This plant is very difficult to find in the trade. I purchased mine from Collectors Nursery.
