Whipcord Western Red Cedar
The Whipcord Western Red Cedar is a needled evergreen shrub that is native to the forests of the Pacific Northwest, found in Northern California, southern Alaska, and along the northern Rockies. Contrary to the standard Western Red Cedar, the largest tree in the cypress family, the Whipcord variety is a slow-growing dwarf variety. The tree features green foliage resembling a whipcord that droops from its branches and this foliage acquires bronze tones in the winter. These trees are best grown in moist, fertile soils in full sun to part shade, in cool summer climates and they are intolerant to dry conditions.
