Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Ideal for a fast-growing, tall screening or hedge. Like most cedars, it will take heavy pruning to create a dense, formal hedge. Once it is established, it is quite drought tolerant and more deer resistant than most cedars. This cultivar stands up better to snow and ice accumulation during the winter months.

Additional Notes about Green Giant Cedar:

'Green Giant' is a fast-growing, cedar cultivar (T. plicata x T. standishii) which was received from D.T. Poulsen, Denmark in 1967 and planted at the U.S. National Arboretum.
