    More about Black Dragon Cryptomeria...

    Noteworthy Characteristics

    Named for its dark green mature needles, Black Dragon Cryptomeria appears almost black in lower levels of light. New growth appears light green and stands out brilliantly against the older needles until it also darkens. This evergreen shrub or small tree has a thick, pyramidal growth habit and may reach heights of 6 to 10 feet with a spread of 4 to 6 feet, depending upon the suitability of its growing location. Although most of  its trunk is hidden by needles, it sports orange to brown peeling bark.

    Uses

    Single Specimen, Groupings, Shrub Borders, Natural Hedge, Home Foundations, Slopes / Embankments, Espalier (grown flat against a wall), Containers

    Culture

    Black Dragon Cryptomeria thrives in full sunlight but will tolerate partial shade. Fast-draining soils with an acidic pH, below 7.0, promote the best growth. Strong winds, whether hot or cold, cause the branches and needles to dry out; therefore this evergreen is best planted in protected areas.
