Cryptomeria japonica 'Radicans'

Overall Description

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.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
