It prefers growing in a location that provides full sun and grows best when planted in loam soil that is well drained. The foliage is medium green in color.

    More About Radicans Cryptomeria...

    Noteworthy Characteristics

    'Radicans' Cryptomeria is very similar to 'Yoshino' in size and form but has a little more bluish tones to the foliage. Radicans is a fast-growing (up to 3-4 feet a year1), tall evergreen conifer with a pyramidal shape that grows 40 to 50 feet in height with a width at the base of about 10 to 12 feet or so when mature.  The foliage of Radicans will not brown up as much as Yoshino during the winter months. All-in-all, we think 'Radicans' is far superior in growth rate and color.

    Uses

    Radicans Cryptomeria is most useful when planted in straight or curved staggered rows for screen plantings however makes a nice specimen in larger landscapes and a corner plant to frame in tall homes and other structures.

    Culture

    Very easy to grow and maintain, plant Radicans Cryptomeria in well-drained soils and full sun to part shade. Not fussy about soil type even growing in clay. Feed in spring with a well-balanced shrub and tree foiod that contains Iron. No pruning will be necessary. Radicans Cryptomeria are less susceptible to tip blight than some variations and are very drought tolerant when established.
