These emerald green conifers are durable, resilient and have an elegant shape.
White Cedar Emerald is one of the hardiest plants we sell here at GardenPlantsOnline, it can cope incredibly well with cold and windy weather, as well as extended periods of drought. Their slender and elegant shape will allow you to create hedges of thick green foliage, but without taking up much space on the ground. The White Cedar Emerald’s leaves hold their colour well all-year-round and release a pleasantly sweet aroma. They also produce fairly large oval-shaped cones in the summertime.
All of our Hedging Plants allow you to style your garden in a range of different ways, not just because of their varied colours, but also because of the way you choose to trim and maintain them. Prune them regularly to achieve a neat, clean form, or let them bush-out a little to create a more natural appearance. Whether you’re using a hedge to give your garden some privacy, or as protection from the weather, road and noise pollution, you’ll want to choose a plant that complements the rest of your garden’s visual appearance. All of our Hedging Plants have evergreen foliage – giving you some pleasant greenery to look at all-year-round.
