    I bought a 4'11" Cryptomeria japonica Radicans from Sooner in June of 2013. It grew 1 1/2 ft that year. It grew 3 ft in 2014, and this year it's grown 2 1/2 ft and more than doubled its bulk and overall size to about 12 1/2 ft tall and 6 ft wide now. I can't say enough good things about this tree. It was super big and healthy when we got it and started to grow immediately. It's done as well as I could have ever imagined. I'm sold on it and thank Sooner for their high quality and good service. I highly recommend this tree to anyone who wants a Giant Sequoia but doesn't have the room. They look a Lot alike, and both grow really fast but this one doesn't get as big. Beautiful tree! Thank you!
