The Cryptomeria Radicans Tree also known as the Japanese cedar is perfect for you!  This tree makes a great privacy screen.  Whether standing alone or grouped together the Cryptomeria Tree exudes beauty.  It's easy to see why this is the national tree of Japan and routinely planted at shrines and temples.

This graceful tree sports soft, dense, feathery foliage that is fragrant. The Cryptomeria Tree matures to a height of 30-40 feet and spreads 15-20 feet wide. It grows at a rapid pace of 3-5 feet per year. This easy to maintain tree is adaptable to a variety of soils, even hard compact clay. It grows in full sun to partial shade. Once matured and established it is also drought and disease resistant. There are very few worries when it comes to the Cryptomeria Tree.

The Cryptomeria is ornamental, versatile and hardy. The Cryptomeria Tree offers a colorful display all year long! For most of the year emerald green needles steal the show. The fresh needles are a brighter green than deepens as the foliage ages. As cold weather takes hold the Cryptomeria gets a purplish bronze tone. The bark is a thick, reddish brown color. This conifer has an upright columnar to a narrow pyramid shape.

How To Care

The Cryptomeria Radicans grows in full sun or part shade. They are extremely adaptable to just about any soil including clay.
Cryptomeria need to be watered well when planted and kept moist with deep waterings at least once weekly for the first few months. Adding 1 to 2 inches of mulch will help hold in moisture, protect the roots, and keep weeds at bay.
Fertilize your tree once yearly in spring with a balanced slow release fertilizer
Cryptomeria do not require pruning. They easily maintain their natural pyramidal habit throughout their lives.
Plant your Radicans in growing zones 5 to 9 for best results.

Landscape Ideas

This is a tree that can be used in a variety of ways. Plant your new Cryptomeria about 8-10 feet apart.  It will get quite large and fill in making it great for privacy.  They don't need to be planted in a line.  You can plant a cluster of 3 then some cherry trees, then another cluster of cryptomeria.  Mix it up a little. Cryptomeria go great with yellows and reds. Plant some Kaleidoscope Abelia or even some Knockout Roses for year round color.  

Cryptomeria Radicans are in high demand and low supply so grab yours today!
