We are excited about this tree! “Burkii” is a relatively new cultivar of Red Cedar that is desired for its uniform shape and density. The foliage of Burkii Red Cedar is a steely blue-green turning purplish-brown in winter.
Burkii Red Cedar is hardy in zones 3 – 9, moderate to fast growing, and grows in full sun to partial shade.
Burkii Red Cedar adapts to a variety of soils.
Like native red cedar, Burkii wood is strong and fragrant, great for repelling insects. Burkii Red Cedar is pest & disease resistant, drought tolerant, and has high salt-tolerance making it ideal for seaside locations.
Use Burkii Red Cedar as a screen, Christmas tree, or make it into a street tree by pruning off the lower branches. Burkii Red Cedar will grow to 25 feet tall by 12 – 15 feet wide. Space as close as 6 feet apart for a quick screen.
