Thuja Plicata Martin
is also known as the Western Red Cedar.
Thuja is part of the cypress family and is known as a fast growing conifer tree. Our Thuja Plicata Hedging plants are supplied as root balled
(e.g. without a pot). The roots are protected and wrapped in a biodegradable hessian sack. As a result, we can offfer these evergreen hedging conifers at an excellent price for our customers.
Thuya Plicata 'Martin' is a particular variety of Thuja which is a mid-size variety that will reach 6-7 metres in height at maturity. This variety retains a slender shape with a diameter of not more than 0.8-1 metre wide. This aspect is particularly useful for hedging purposes where lateral space is usually limited. The evergreen foliage of Thuja Plicata Martin is a dense, mid green in colour, which becomes tinged with an attractive bronze during the winter months.
Thuja Plicata Martin is a very popular choice for privacy screening hedging, partly due to its ability to renew itself after trimming or cutting back. Other varieties of fast growing hedging, for example Cupressus Leylandii
, can develop dead foliage at their centre (especially when they are not regularly trimmed) which won’t renew itself easily. Thuja Plicata conversely, will regrow happily after being cut back and still remain a lovely verdant green hedge.
Thuja Plicata or Western Red Cedar (named for its red bark) is native to Pacific North America and grows well in the UK climate - easy to grow and with low maintenance. A trim at the beginning of the Spring to keep in shape is usually enough to last the year. If necessary, give another trim in autumn (don't leave it too late in the year for the last cut). Although a fast growing hedge it doesn't need as much managing as Leylandii. Thuja Plicata Martin has unusually fragrant foliage, when you brush past the trees or when you trim the leaves, there is a lovely scent of pineapple from the bright green foliage. A very attractive and practical hedge plant 'Martin' is also an impressive specimen tree for small to medium sized gardens.
Another excellent variety of Thuja (sometimes spelled Thuya) that is especially useful for hedging, is Thuja Occidentalis Brabant.
