The Hillspire Eastern Red Cedar, also known as Hillspire Juniper, was discovered around 1925 at D. Hill Nursery and it got its initial name, Cupressifolia, due to its cypress-like foliage. However, this name already belonged to another plant and to avoid confusion, it was renamed to Hillspire, which became its accepted name today. Standing tall and graceful, the Hillspire Eastern Red Cedar adds a touch of elegance to any landscape. Hillspires come from female cuttings which produce a heavy crop of bluish-green berries in the summer. Its slender, conical form creates a vertical accent without overwhelming smaller spaces. Unlike its wider-growing Eastern Red Cedar cousins, the Hillspire maintains a manageable spread, making it ideal for flanking entrances, lining pathways, or privacy screens. The Hillspire thrives in various conditions. Its dense, bright green foliage remains vibrant year-round, adding a touch of life even in the colder months. Low on maintenance needs, the Hillspire tolerates drought and poor soil.
