Evergreen version of pea, encased in pot (8,5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

japanese cedar

Here is my best explanation:

'evergreen' is the definition.

'version of pea encased in pot' is the subsidiary indication.

'version of' is an anagram indicator.

'in' indicates putting letters inside.

'pot' becomes 'jar'.

'pea'+'encased'='peaencased'

'peaencased' anagrammed gives 'apaneseced'.

'apaneseced' placed into 'jar' is 'japanesecedar'.
