The Eastern Red Cedar ‘Burkii’ are attractive evergreens that are known for their unique silver/blue green foliage. They have a dense pyramidal form and they are often used for privacy screen and ornamental accents in flower beds. They have a very smooth feel which differs from it’s parent needle like foliage. Another plus to the Burkii is the uniformity of their canopies since they are all taken from cuttings; its parent, the Eastern Red Cedar, has been known to have a lot of variance in the shape and size of their canopies. Burkiis are all females and they produce lots of blue green berries during the Fall. Burkiis have proven to be extremely drought tolerant, disease resistant and able to handle a wide variety of soil conditions. The Burkiis are the hardiest variety of the silver/blue trees on the market with the highest resistance to canker. Much hardier than the Blue Ice Arizona and Carolina Sapphire Cypress trees.
