Growers are capitalizing on the popularity of this plant to implement it as a
street tree and not just a screening or hedge plant. It is extremely tough and
takes a wide range of light, soil and moisture conditions once established. It is
important to not let it dry out, especially when young, or to sit in poorly
drained soil. Radicans will also be much more dense in full sun.  A good water
and feeding regime will have Cryptomeria growing so fast you might almost
hear it.
