Incense Cedar, California Incense Cedar
The cedar is an attractive, stiff, narrow evergreen tree which has a columnar growing pattern and maintains a central leader. The foliage is comprised of scale needles, while the coarse bark has an attractive cinnamon red-brown coloring. The cedar retains its color in winter and under good cultiral conditons, will maintain its foliage to the ground. It serves as an effective screening evergreen, and contrasts well with Maples and other deciduous trees and flowering plants.
