For a stately, fast-growing evergreen that can handle poor soil and yet grow fast, choose the Yoshino Japanese Cryptomeria and you won’t be disappointed. Whether you want a specimen for a focal point, a matching pair to flank your doorway or an attractive belt of evergreen screening, this tree fits the bill.

• Fast growing, three to four feet a year when young
• Handles poor and compacted soil with no problem
• Rich-green foliage all year round, with no significant bronzing in winter
• Free of pests and serious diseases
• No pruning needed to keep its elegant pyramid shape

The ability to thrive in the poor soil often found in urban conditions, as well as in poorly-drained soil, makes this evergreen first-choice for difficult locations. When young it will grow up to four feet in a year, so it quickly becomes a mature specimen or a wonderful, rich-green screen from weather or ugly views. Unlike other fast-growing evergreens, the Yoshino Japanese Cryptomeria is low-maintenance because it rarely if ever needs trimming to keep its dense form.
