For those gardeners seeking "something different" for the garden, look no further than this Pacific NW native. Whipcord Western Red Cedar is in the same family as the cedar trees revered by the NW Indian tribes, but has a look all its own. Cord-like arching branches form a rounded mound that frankly, looks spectacular in hanging baskets and container planters. It's a slow grower, eventually forming a rounded shrub about four feet tall and wide, making it a unique specimen in the garden. The normally green foliage takes on a bronze hue in the cold weather, adding interest to the winter landscape.
