Thuja occidentalis Smaragd
White cedar Smaragd
This conifer is a slightly darker shade of green than the Thuja occidentalis Brabant. The Smaragd also has a more delicate leaf structure. The name ‘smaragd’ comes from the Dutch word for emerald and refers to its colour.
This conifer is simple to care for and grows without problems in most conditions. For those it appeals to, a cedar has a lovely ‘pine woods’ fragrance.
This hedge is very winter-hardy.
