Wansdyke Silver Cedar Growing and Maintenance Tips

It benefits from a light pruning to achieve a more compact form. It is suited to small, group plantings for foundation areas or contained within the landscape bed. 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.
