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.

Radicans has more blue in the foliage than
‘Yoshino’. ‘Radicans’ also has a narrower, more
conical, and slightly denser form than ‘Yoshino’.
