(Giant Arborvitae, Western Arborvitae, Western Red Cedar)

Native to northwestern North America, western red cedar is a broadly pyramidal evergreen tree with slender drooping branches. 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...

(Giant Arborvitae, Western Arborvitae, Western Red Cedar)

Though native to moist sites in northwestern North America, the western red cedar has proven remarkably adaptable to warmer, drier climates and a range of soils. This selection, ‘Clemson #1,’ grows well as far afield as the southeastern U.S., where summers are hot and humid. It is a narrowly pyramidal evergreen tree with sturdy horizontal branches and sprays of small, clinging, scaly leaves that give it a feathery texture.

This arborvitae tolerates both moist and dry sites but does best in organic,...

(Giant Arborvitae, Western Arborvitae, Western Red Cedar)

Though native to moist sites in northwestern North America, western red cedar has proven remarkably adaptable to warmer, drier climates and a wide range of soils.

(Giant Arborvitae, Western Arborvitae, Western Red Cedar)

Though native to moist sites in northwestern North America, western red cedar has proven remarkably adaptable to warmer, drier climates and a range of soils. A fast-growing, narrow, conical selection of this beautiful evergreen conifer, ‘Virescens' is also noteworthy for its rich green foliage which holds its color year-round. As with other forms of western red cedar it bears feathery drooping sprays of scale-like leaves which emit a fruity odor when bruised. Older plants have ornamental shredding...

(Deerhorn Cedar, Hiba Arborvitae, Hiba Cedar)

Unfairly uncommon in gardens in North America, Hiba cedar has feathey scaled foliage of dark green and pretty silver undersides and colorful cones. A slow-growing, evergreen conifer from Japan, it attains a pyramid-like shape with age. In larger specimens the shredding bark becomes more apparent and appreciated.

The scaled, flattened needles resemble any typical arborvitae (Thuja) but they are slightly larger and held in coarser branching sprays, resembling antlers. Dark green in color,...

(Canada Hemlock)

Canada hemlock is a graceful evergreen tree that is useful for screening, hedges or as a feature plant in the yard. Its pyramidal shape is formed by pendulous branches lined with short, dark green needles. Small brown cones are formed in late summer and can be used in craft projects.

This eastern North America native is happiest in organic, well-drained but moist soil and can be sheared to a desired size or shape. Canada hemlock is intolerant of boggy soil, pollution and drying winds. Woolly adelgid...
