Growing and Maintenance Tips:

It benefits from a light pruning to achieve a more compact form. It is suited to small group plantings for foundation areas or contained within the landscape bed. Damage or stem breakage may occur in the winter from ice and snow accumulation. Protection (burlap wrap) from drying winter winds is recommended in an exposed location.

Additional Notes about Wansdyke Silver Cedar:

Deer find the soft evergreen foliage very attractive for winter food and will rapidly strip a plant.
