There's a lot to love about this dense, slow growing little evergreen. You have to love its form… it's so compact that it will fit in any garden, even in a formal container or foundation garden, places where native plants never seem to find a home. You'll also love its easy care nature. Nothing seems to bother this plant; wind, partial shade, moist to wet soils. 'Top Point' takes all these concerns in stride without batting an eye. It even looks great with small, deep green, very short needled foliage packed tightly enough on branches to seem almost impenetrable with an added bonus of a plum red to bronze winter color that really catches the eye. You and your garden critters will love this little gem no matter where you put it in the garden!
Grow Atlantic White Cedar in moist to average soil and full sun. It is not tolerant of shade. In a container, consistent moisture is essential. Chamaecyparis thyoides is tolerant of periodic inundation as well as brief periods of drought.
