I understand Cryptomeria japonica Black Dragon is quite irregular and rapid in growth, but I'm finding it difficult to get information on its typical size when full grown. None of my sources seem to agree. Can you help me learn its heighth, width / possible total size in a mostly sunny location? Thank you.

Cryptomeria japonica 'Black Dragon' is also known as Japanese Cedar. Japanese Cedars display thick, billowy foliage, and 'Black Dragon' is a striking fastigiate (narrow) selection which grows ultimately to 5-6 feet in height, becoming somewhat pyramidal with age. The needles are a rich dark green. In our experience Japanese Cedars grow best in acid, moist soil with some protection from winter winds. Hope this answers all your questions!
