Cryptomeria japonica 'Black Dragon'

Black Dragon Japanese Cedar is a dense, irregular-growing but conical evergreen with needle-like, green to almost black foliage. New spring growth, however, is light green. Produces tiny, roundish, red-brown cones. This beautiful, small specimen tree is best used in rock gardens or large containers. Grows slowly to 5' tall and 7' wide in ten years; takes even longer to reach maturity. Deer seldom browse.
