    This wonderful Western red cedar has attractive sprays of dark green foliage and is a valuable hedging plant for a sunny, sheltered site. Left untrimmed it forms a tall, columnar to conical shape, that makes an excellent specimen for the larger garden.

  • Garden care: Wearing gardening gloves trim hedges twice a year - in spring and again in late summer. Protect from cold winds, particularly the newly planted specimens.
