Sun or Shade- The tree tends to grow best in full sunlight but can tolerate cloudy conditions and heavy rainfall for a short period of time.
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 types of soil and weather conditions, it's a plant that is often selected for shade or for decoration.
