Dragon Prince™ Cryptomeria Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 6-10

Prefers Full Sun., Although some shade is tolerated, plenty of sun ensures that the Dragon Prince™ has dense, rich light-green foliage.

Water 2-3 times a week for the first growing season. Afterwards, provide supplemental watering 1-2 times a week when rainfall is low.

Plant the Dragon Prince™ in moist, rich, acidic soil for best results. Top-dress the soil underneath your plant with 2-3 inches of compost every year to keep it flush with organic matter.

Fertilize yearly in spring with a balanced, acidic plant fertilizer. For more rapid growth, reapply fertilizer every few months during the growing season.

Dragon Prince™ Spacing Recommendations 

Plant Your Dragon Prince™ 3-4 feet apart for a seamless planting, Otherwise, space them 6-8+ feet apart for gaps between plants.

    Fast Shipping! Very well packed and very healthy plants. But, I ordered 10 of the Dragon Prince™ Cryptomeria (Japanese Cedar), it came only 9 of it and substituted 1 with different plant without letting me know. I am happy with the purchased but please do not make your own decision/substitute without let customer know. Thanks.

    We were very disappointed in size of the 2 gallon plants. They were more the size of what you would think a 1 gallon plant would be. Nothing like the size shown on the Ytube video.

    My plants arrived faster than I expected. Healthy and in perfect shape. Very reasonable shipping fees.

    I received my order today (a day early) and they look sooo amazing! Thank you for promptly answering all my questions. I’m a new home owner, so you’ll soon be hearing from me again. Happy New Year!

    I received 2 of these plants in beautiful condition I planted them in my Aqua Pots (Provin Winner) on my front porch which gets sun at noon so far looking good except one is getting burned so I’ll see maybe it just needed more water so I filled the pot.

    What a unique shrub. Saw it on a gardening clip on Youtube and really wanted one. Very pleased to find one online. Perfect shape, planted it and it doing well in the sunny spot in my front yard.

  12. Pam (verified owner)

    I ordered 2 plants 2.5 QT size. Plants arrived healthy and are doing very well. Exactly as described. I would have given 5 stars if both plants arrived being approximately the same size. One was much smaller.

  13. Lorraine (verified owner)

    Plants were in pots and arrived in great shape. The box they were shipped in kept the plants safe during shipment. I love these plants. Will definitely buy from them again

  14. John bossler (verified owner)

    Plant came damaged. You extended warranty. I won’t do this again

    As soon as I saw this Dragon Prince, I just had to have it! I love the fact it is bouncy and soft to the touch, unlike most conifers that poke you. I want to make a Japanese garden on the east side of our house and I picked this shrub for its compact size, density of foliage and naturally mounded shape. It arrived in a timely manner well packaged with a bit of frost burn on some of the tips I’m guessing. No biggy. Just got a little shear. Thanks for letting me get my hands on these!
