Brodie Eastern Red Cedar, Brodie Juniper, Pencil Cedar, or Juniperus virginiana ‘Brodie’ is a conical tree with all the best qualities of a cedar, combined with the form of and columnar evergreen. Don’t be deceived by its name. This stunning tree is in the Juniper family. The Brodie Easter Red Cedar has fragrant, finely textured, deep-green foliage. Growing to heights of 15 to 20 feet, with a spread of 6 to 7 feet, the picturesque Brodie Easter Red Cedar bears an abundance of small, dark blue-to-gray berries in the fall. During the winter, in cold climates, the foliage of the Brodie changes to a show-stopping, reddish color.

Native to eastern North America and bred by Proven Winners, the Brodie Eastern Red Cedar is fast-growing and has a narrow, pyramidal, dense-branching habit. It is tough and hardy, deer and pest resistant, and drought tolerant. It provides excellent cover for songbirds, who use it to build nests safe from predators, and love it for its tasty berries. This compact Cedar is a perfect option for narrow spaces. 

Brodie Eastern Red Cedar Care

Brodie Eastern Red Cedar thrives in full to partial sun. It can easily tolerate poor or sandy soils, but will grow taller in areas with good soil and adequate moisture. It is a reliable, versatile grower that can thrive in almost any soil or environmental condition.

Prune your Brodie for size control and shaping in early summer after its new growth has been established. In the first few years after planting, mulch the base of the plant to keep the soil cool and moist, as well as control weeds. The Brodie is susceptible to spider mites, aphids, and blight, so watch it for signs of distress like falling needles, sooty mold, sticky deposits, and browning branches. 

Brodie Eastern Red Cedar Spacing

When planting your Brodie Eastern Red Cedar space plants between 6 and 8 feet apart from center to center. Group them together to form an attractive border hedge. They make excellent wind screens or breaks in colder areas with lots of snow and frigid wind.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
