Red Cedar Tree is A massive tree with beautiful features.
The red cedar tends to grow best in zones 3 through 9. These areas are located in the Pacific Northwest, especially in Washington and Oregon, where more rain tends to fall so that the tree can thrive. The tree is also seen in many southern states, including North Carolina and Alabama.
Bloom Season- Cedar trees tend to bloom from April to May.
Bloom Color- The color of the blooms on the red cedar tree is white with gentle pink striations. There are also cones on the tree just before the leaves grow, with berries on the cones that are blue or black.
When looking at a red cedar tree at full height, one can see that they can be as small as 10 feet or as tall as 80 feet if they are several years old.
When the tree is mature, it typically stands between 50 to 60 feet, with a few exceptions depending on the type of soil and growing conditions.
Soil Type Preferred- A combination of acidic and alkaline soil is best for red cedars. The tree grows well in clay or sand and soil that is rich in nutrients, making it a plant that is tolerable of many types of growing conditions.
Sun or Shade- The tree tends to grow best in full sunlight but can tolerate cloudy conditions and heavy rainfall for a short period.
Plant Description- As the red cedar grows taller, the top of the tree begins to resemble the shape of a triangle with a pointed area at the top. Although the branches are usually green throughout the year, they can have a slight brown coloration underneath the leaves, giving the tree an overall darker appearance at times. Since the tree easily adapts to different soil and weather conditions, it's a plant that is often selected for shade or decoration.
