I like the Yoshino.

You may have a hard time finding the plant at a "wholesale" nursery. I discovered that if you want a garden variety shrub/tree (e.g., Arborvitae) then you may be able to find it, but if you start specifying a certain variety (e.g., Yellow Ribbon Arborvitae) then you may need to go to a specialty nursery, or order it from a specialty nursery. We ordered a few shrubs from a little nursery down in Fuquay and their prices were reasonable.

Broadwell's is great if you know what you are looking for (and know what it looks like). Nothing is labeled, either with plant name or price. Some of the "road" can be pretty rough, so you will need to walk or have a truck.

Planting when it's 100 degrees is not a good plan. Plating in fall or early winter is best. Don't plant Leylands- they grow fast but fall over after 7 years or so because they succomb to all sorts of fungi, root problems, etc. I am happy with my arborvitae I planted in their place, but never looked into cryptomeria. Good luck to you!
