Stylish and chic, this unusual exotic cultivar is also known as the Japanese Cedar. It's gaining popularity all across the country.
Robust in grow zones 5-9 and bred to develop at a fast pace, Radicans grow at an amazing rate of 3-4 feet per year. Maturing to heights of 35-45 feet with an approximate spread of under 20 feet, this tree shows off a graceful and elegant figure--tall, slender and tapering to a point.
Cryptomeria flaunts densely packed emerald green foliage that is soft and wispy, rather than the typically stiff and spiky flora of many evergreen trees. Plant near a deck or patio and sit back and enjoy the flowing foliage, when it ripples like downy fur in a gentle breeze. You can literally see where the wind starts and stops.
Don't let the exotic beauty fool you, Cryptomeria Radicans are tough and adapt to a variety of soils and conditions, even hard compact clay. Growing in full sun to partial shade, this ruggedly mellow conifer is also quite drought tolerant once established. It is also disease resistant and practically thrives on neglect. Just plant it and you never have to think about it again.
These trees make a wonderful backdrop for lower-growing shrubs such as our Ruby Dazzle Crape Myrtle or a grouping of Knock Out Rose bushes.
Depending on your region, Cryptomeria’s foliage may turn from deep emerald green to a dramatic bronzy green in winter, offering year-round color and texture.
Your Cryptomeria arrives with a well developed root system, ready for rapid growth.
