Brandon Pyramidal Cedar Growing and Maintenance Tips
Typically grown as a hedge, these cedars can also be used in groupings for privacy screens. This cultivar is a good solution for landscapes where space is an issue as it stays very narrow and compact. Widely used for pruning into a formal topiary, such as a spiral. 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.
