Description

Atlantic White Cedar (Chamaecyparis thyoides) is a large evergreen tree found naturally in forested wetlands. We recommend planting it in wet areas with poor drainage or along ponds, streams, or boggy sites. Atlantic White Cedar provides important cover for wildlife during the winter months and in extreme weather. It is a host plant for the Hessel’s Hairstreak (similar to Edwards Hairstreak shown above). With its winter interest and pleasant characteristic cedar fragrance, Atlantic White Cedar will make a beautiful addition to your yard.

Conservation Status: Atlantic White Cedar is categorized as rare in Georgia, Mississippi, Maine, Maryland, New York, New Hampshire. It is locally extinct in PA.
