Whipcord Western Red Cedar - Thuja plicata 'Whipcord'

Regular price $17.99

The unusual foliage on this low, mop-head like plant consists of long, thick, glossy tendrils that suggest independence Day fireworks.

Green in summer, the foliage changes to bronze in winter, matching the richly colored wood. A tough, dynamic conifer that demonstrates some deer resistance and has some tolerance to dry soil. Great for a shady spot as well.
