Alaskan Cedar

Jay Sifford

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Alaskan Cedar(Chamaecyparis nootkatensis)This unique conifer species can look quite majestic or even a bit ghoulish, especially if backlit against the setting sun. Heavily weeping, dark green fern-like foliage earns this tree a place in almost every garden. There are some wonderful cultivars, such as 'Pendula' and 'Green Arrow', but my favorite is 'Van den Akker'. This cultivar reaches an average height of 20 to 30 feet, yet a width of only 2 feet after the lower juvenile branches are removed. It is spectacular when planted in groups of three, as each tree has a slightly different weeping habit. Planted this way they almost look like a group of people huddled in conversation.USDA zones: 4 to 8Water and soil requirements: Moist to average soilLight requirement: Full sun to partial shadeMature size: 30 feet tall and 2 feet wideWhen to plant: Fall or spring
