Excerpt from The Garden, Vol. 28: An Illustrated Weekly Journal of Horticulture in All Its Branches; Christmas, 1885

Among the many Japanese Coniferae that succeed so well in this country, this is one of the most useful. It forms, when young, a somewhat globular bushy plant, but as it increases in size it acquires a tree-like character. What makes this Retinospora different from all others is the long pendulous, thread-like branchlets, often terminated by tufts of little shoots. For small gardens and in permanent bedding arrange ments, or for similar purposes, this Retinospora is, in its young stages, well suited, and when 6 feet or 8 feet high it forms a handsome specimen for lawns of limited extent.' When larger, its growth is, as a rule, more irregular in character. Retinosporas are easily propagated, quite hardy, and do well in most situations if they outgrow their bounds, they can be reduced by means of the knife without destroying their beauty, as, if cut back, they all again break freely into growth. R. Obtusa and pisifera are the largest growing sorts, but of both, dwarf compact specimens may be met with.

The principal recognised variety of R. Pisifera is that in which the foliage is golden, but of R. Obtusa, which varies more than R. Pisifera when raised from seeds, there are several varieties recognised as dis tinct. Amongst them are aurea and gracilis aurea, compacta and pygmaea, the distinctive characters of which are explained by their respective names. Apart from these recognised varieties, however, from a bed of seedlings may be picked out many distinct and beautiful types varying greatly in habit.
