Great Plant Picks - Cryptomeria japonica is one of the most variable conifers you can imagine with plants ranging from very dwarf rounded shrubs, trees with golden or contorted leaves, and wild forest trees to 80 feet high and 20 feet wide. 'Black Dragon' takes the middle road, neither too small nor too big. It has the deep green, needle-like leaves characteristic of this species. This very dark-foliaged conifer is easy to grow and combines well with plants having larger or variegated leaves. Light green foliage in the spring, darkens through the year to dark green. Irregular growth habit but overall a pyramidal, compact plant with a growth rate of 3-6" per year.

Nodding bright green tips of the new shoots provide eye-catching contrast to the dark-green older foliage that characterizes this dense pyramidal cultivar. Sun-PSh/Med
