This plant is an evergreen so it will provide year-round color and privacy. This plant is also deer resistant so it is a great option for wooded areas.

Taylor Red Cedar Care
Plant the Taylor Red Cedar in full sun because this shrub likes lots of sunlight. While this cedar can handle a variety of soil conditions, it will thrive in average soil that is moist and well drained. The soil pH should be less than 7.0. New plants need regular watering for the first two years, while established plants need supplemental water during a dry spell. Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer once each spring.
Remove dead or damaged branches, but do not heavily prune this plant. The Taylor Red Cedar has a good natural shape and removing branches may cause gaps in the greenery.
Taylor Red Cedar Spacing
The Taylor Red Cedar is a tree-like shrub with a columnar shape. Mature plants stand 15 to 20 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide. Space shrubs 4 to 6 feet apart to create a hedge.
