Emerald Cedar is the common name for Thuja occidentalis Smaragd, which is a very popular member of the Thuja family.  Also known as Eastern Arborvitae and American White Cedar, the Emerald Cedar may be the most frequently used hedging shrub in America.  Loved for its crisp texture and bright, emerald green foliage, the Emerald Cedar generally maintains its colour year round.

This plant can be kept to a height of 4 feet or can be left to grow to a height of about 15 feet, spreading to a width of 4 – 5 feet, and growing about 8 – 12 inches per year.  Planted in rows, Emerald Cedars make a beautiful, vibrant green, privacy hedge.  For optimal privacy, plant shrubs at 2 foot centers.
