Thuja Plicata ‘Atrovirens’ (Western Red Cedar) 120-150cm Rootballed


120-150cm, rootballed hedge plant, for hardy evergreen screening.

These plants are approximately waist/chest high.

Plant approx 60cm apart to form an instant hedge, and they will knit together once the growing season starts.

Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata) hedge plants are a popular alternative to Leylandii.

It boasts a spray of bright green, fragrant foliage and is easy to maintain.  Western Cedar, as it is more commonly known, has a fairly vigorous growth rate and does not suffer from browning when old growth is cut into.   Provides a very effective screen, has windbreak and noise reducing qualities and forms a striking conifer display.


The plants should be planted and thoroughly watered as soon as possible after delivery, to avoid drying out. Rootballed plants should be planted with the hessian sack still in place (the hessian will rot away in the ground).  Do not remove this hessian sack.

Feeding & Aftercare

We recommend to plant with Westland Bone Meal (which acts as a root stimulant) and 6X Fertiliser (a long acting fertiliser). The plants should also be fed from Springtime onwards with Chempak No. 2.
