Lush Cryptomeria for Constant Color and Texture

Why Black Dragon Cryptomeria?

The Black Dragon Cryptomeria is a favorite of ours for many reasons. First, its dark evergreen needles and layered branches add stunning color and texture - all while presenting a tranquil demeanor to the landscape.

As this tree grows, new foliage begins bright green, eventually darkening to a unique, greenish-black later on. This Cryptomeria thrives in full sun and can reach a max height of 10 feet tall by 5 feet wide. And due to its compact nature, this evergreen will fit in just about anywhere, so you can add it as a focal point or hedge in small to large spaces.

The best part? This tree is fairly adaptable to any soil and doesn't require any pruning. The Black Dragon Cryptomeria is also pest and disease resistant, as well as deer and drought tolerant once established for added hardiness and reliability.

Beautiful tree

Ordering was easy. This is a gift for my daughter. I had her open it and she fell instantly in love with this tree. She’s now on a mission to pick the best spot outdoors for it. I was impressed with the quality of the tree and the shipping was so fast. I look forward to getting some plants for myself next spring. Seeing my daughter’s face was priceless. Thank you for making this Christmas extra special.

Beautiful evergreen

My order came fast and the trees looked great. Package kept plants secure and all soil was intact. I appreciated getting plants that were not root bound to help get them growing with no stress.

Fresh and healthy

I had hoped to start with a bigger tree, but these arrived, looking so healthy, and were packaged so well, that I think they will do well in the ground and adapt quickly.
