Emerald cedars thrive in full sun in fertile, well-drained soil with summer watering for the first few seasons. In these conditions, they grow 8 to 12 inches a year. Then their growth slows dramatically at about 15 feet high by 4 feet wide.
These emerald green conifers are durable, resilient and have an elegant shape.
White Cedar Emerald is one of the hardiest plants, it can cope incredibly well with cold and windy weather, as well as extended periods of drought. Their slender and elegant shape will allow you to create hedges of thick green foliage, but without taking up much space on the ground. The White Cedar Emerald’s leaves hold their colour well all-year-round and release a pleasantly sweet aroma. They also produce fairly large oval-shaped cones in the summertime.
Whether you want to give your garden some privacy, or as protection from the weather, road and noise pollution, you’ll want to choose a plant that complements the rest of your garden’s visual appearance.
