Cryptomeria Radicans are fast growing evergreen trees with dark green, dense foliage. These trees reach a height of 40-50 feet, but their spread is only 8-12 feet so they work well as a tall evergreen in a tighter space and are also used as high hedges. Radicans are hardy in Zones 5-9. They are less susceptible to tip blight than some variations. USDA ZONES:Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9

Most Plant Me Green trees can be shipped and planted any time of year, unless the variety is specified as only seasonal delivery (such as bare root trees). Our shipping schedule is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. This is to ensure our trees do not stay in a box longer than necessary and arrive to you as healthy as possible. If a package needs to arrive prior to a specific date, or at a more convenient time for you, please notate that upon placement of your order. On some occasions, severe weather and other unusual issues can delay shipping and delivery of your Plant Me Green package. Holiday shipping schedules are set by the carriers.
First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
After planting, water cryptomeria regularly, keeping its soil moist to 1 inch deep during the first growing season. In the summer, water at least once a week. You should also prune in the summer so that the tree remains healthy and keeps its pyramidal shape.

Fantastic Experience!

We ordered two trees, and have been so happy with them! They've been in the ground for about two weeks now and despite a month-long drought here in Tennessee, we've kept them watered and they look great. They came nicely-packaged, and earlier than promised. This has been a great experience, and we're trying to decide what to order next!

Awesome customer service!

I had my trees turn a slight brown tinge and they promptly shipped out replacements. I appreciate the helpful information! Will buy again from them.

looking good

I ordered 4 trees in March, to plant to screen utility poles. They arrived pretty quickly and we planted them within a couple of days of arrival. I was concerned that one had a "crushed" side, that looked like it had been mashed or mishandled. As I expected, it turned brown and dropped all branches and growth for about 12-18 inches on that side, but 4 months later, it has pretty much healed and all four trees look good and are growing nicely.
