Cryptomeria japonica 'Radicans'
Very similar tall, pyramidal growth habit as 'Yoshino', but with a little more of a bluish tone to the foliage. Also will not bronze up as much in the winter. Yet another cryptomeria that is becoming more & more popular for use in landscaping. We have found this variety to be far superior to 'Yoshino" in growth rate, color, and limited winter bronzing. Can be used as a specimen, single planting - or planted in groups or rows for a beautiful screen or large property border.
