From Question and Answer Forums: What are others saying about this plant?
I live in NYC and would like to use the Cryptomeria Yoshino to grow 30-40 feet as a living privacy screen, but in a 6 x 20 wide space. It is important to note that there is a concrete wall and a resin shed and I would be planting these trees in between. I have been reading that they require 10-15 width, but dont know if they would just get used to growing in the area that they are in at 6. If not, please advise what type of similar Evergreen would provide a 30-40 feet height, but in a 6 x 20 area. Thank you for your reading time
