Excelsa Red Cedar/Arborvitae - Thuja plicata 'Excelsa'

The Excelsa Cedar are natural-looking, good-smelling, indigenous cedar trees, suitable for rural, semi-rural and some urban settings. Often used when an Arborvitae is too small but a height-controlled screening tree is called for.

Water regularly as needed. In colder climates, water well in fall and during prolonged winter dry spells to better protect plant for winter. Feed in spring with an all purpose fertilizer prior to new spring growth. Little pruning is necessary but can be sheared to keep denser.
