The Top Point Dwarf White Cedar is a compact beauty that provides year-round color and texture. The Chamaecyparis thyoides have dense, short needled foliage in a deep green, although new foliage will have hints of blue. The foliage will turn a deep purplish-red with bronze tones during the winter. The Top Point Dwarf White Cedar is native to North America, meaning it requires very little attention once it is acclimated. 

This slow-grower can be planted in a container or along a foundation wall. Feature this stunner in beds, borders, or a mass planting. The dense foliage provides color and privacy if used as a hedge. Songbirds and other small animals will take shelter in the full foliage.  Grow the Top Point Dwarf White Cedar as a perennial in USDA zones 4 through 8.

Top Point Dwarf White Cedar Care

Grow this shrub in full sun. Use rich, moist soil with good drainage. This plant is drought-tolerant once established but consistently water for the first growing season, giving the plant at least one inch of water per week.

Feed this white cedar using a balanced, slow-release fertilizer each spring. Remove dead growth as necessary and shape the plant in late winter or early spring.

Top Point Dwarf White Cedar Spacing

The Top Point Dwarf White Cedar is an upright plant that grows slowly. Mature plants will reach 4 to 5 feet tall and spread 18 to 24 inches. Space shrubs 16 to 20 inches apart to create a full, dense hedge or planting.

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.
