Thuja plicata - Western Red Cedar 1.5/1.75m tall
Thuja plicata is a tough and hardy evergreen tree ideal for use as a hedge or for taller screening. This Cedar has a beautiful shiny leaf which is light green in colour through the growing season and has a tinge of brown through the winter months. Although this is a large tree when mature it can be easily clipped and kept to a manageable height. Thuja plicata can be cut back hard and re-grow without leaving brown patches as with the faster growing Leylandii.
Excellent when used as hedging or for screening with the freshly cut aromatic foliage smelling of citrus. A fast growing tree, but slower than Leylandii. Tolerates any well drained soil and suited to being planted in any aspect. Low maintenance.
