Fast Growing Privacy Cedar

Cryptomeria Radicans, also known as Japanese Cedar, is a fast-growing evergreen. One would look terrific as an accent next to your patio. You could also plant several for a quick hedge along your properly line, or use a few as a privacy screen or windbreak.

Specifically bred to grow quickly, you’ll be amazed as you watch your Crypotmeria Radicans grow 3-4 feet per year! It’s one of the most graceful evergreens you’ll ever see with its densely-packed, dark green foliage gently tapering to a point as it shoots upward toward the sky.

The soft feathery foliage is a delight to touch, and you’ll love how the slightest of breezes inspire a delicate foliage dance. As if all this weren't enough, your Japanese Cedar (depending upon your particular conditions), will reward you with spicy, bronze tones for winter as an additional decorative touch for the cold season.

Japanese Cedar will grow up to 45 feet in height with a 20 foot spread. It’s a rather versatile evergreen, happy in full sun to partial shade. It’s also tolerant of a variety of soil conditions, even including clay. Once established, Japanese Cedar is drought tolerant, and it’s also disease resistant.

A lovely evergreen that’s soft and feathery in both appearance and texture, Japanese Cedar is sure to be a delight to your sense all year round.
