(Western Arborvitae, Western Red Cedar, Whipcord Arborvitae)

It has feathery flat sprays of dark green, scale-like leaves which emit a fruity odor when bruised. They become bronze-tinged in cold weather. Older plants have ornamental shredding red-brown bark. The small tan female cones are ornamentally insignificant.

This handsome conifer prefers moist organic well-drained soil and full to partial sun. Unlike eastern arborvitae it...

Its exfoliating corky gray bark lines the upright, seemingly steadfast branches and trunk.

The leaves of this species would lend you to believe it is not a linden whatsoever. Each blade emerges reddish and unfurls to become a glossy dark green leaf that is rounded with tipped...
