Additional Information About Japanese Cedar

Cryptomeria Japonica 'Radicans' is a fast growing tree that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 5A through 8B. It matures to an average height of 20 feet to 40 feet and an average width of 15 feet to 20 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides full sun, morning sun with afternoon shade or morning shade with afternoon sun and grows best when planted in loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained or moderately drained. The foliage is medium green in color. It attracts visual attention and is resistant to deer, drought, insects, diseases, mildew and heat.

Radicans Cryptomeria can be useful in the landscape along woodland borders, as a buffer or screen, as a background, as a lawn substitute, as a focal point, in landscape beds or islands, to frame the corners of a home or other building, to accentuate entryways or in small groupings and also in theme gardens.


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.
