    Does anybody have any experience w/ these trees? I need a large border plant, and I thought these would be a more appealing choice than Leland Cypress. I have heard from a couple of people that they are prone to fungus... is that true? Even in full sun?

    One property we maintain has some crypotmeria japonicas - they must be 70 + yrs old - in partial shade - no pest or fungal problems.

    I love Cryptomerias! But, as we don't have any idea WHERE you are, nobody can really tell you if they'd do well where you are.
    In upper Zone 8.....great tree!
