The blackish green evergreen foliage of 'Black Dragon' Japanese Cedar has an interesting irregular texture on an upright plant. Cryptomeria japonica 'Black Dragon' is much slower and smaller than C. 'Yoshino', so excellent for smaller spaces. 'Black Dragon' gets its name from its dark green needles that, in shade, almost look black. This cultivar originated as a seedling selected in the mid-1980s by Iseli Nursery, Boring, Oregon. It is also salt tolerant.
