The Magic Dragon Japanese Cedar is a fast-growing evergreen tree that is ideal for a graceful, upright specimen, a hedge, or as a screen to enclose your garden. It is the fastest growing form of Japanese Cedar, and can grow up to 18 inches a year. Soon it will be a tall column 10, 20 or even 30 feet tall, yet it keeps its narrow form, so it is ideal for a small to medium-sized garden. Besides being fast-growing, it also keeps its rich green color all winter, while most other forms of this plant turn bronze and are less attractive. This means it is ideal for a hedge that is always green, no matter the season. Its foliage is soft to the touch, so it is an ideal evergreen for spots in your garden where people pass close to it, and for areas used by children.

  • Fastest-growing Japanese Cedar variety
  • Beautiful upright form for specimens or screens
  • Soft green foliage stays green all winter
  • Needs no trimming to keep it columnar form
  • Easily grown and deer resistant too

The Magic Dragon Japanese Cedar will grow best planted in a sunny or lightly-shaded location, in any well-drained soil. Once your plants are well established in your garden, they will tolerate some drought, but this plant does best with regular watering and grows especially well in areas with high rainfall. This is an easily grown plant, with no pests or diseases and usually not eaten by deer. It can be trimmed or left to grow naturally – whichever you do it will be dense and neat, never growing into a large, untidy plant.
