(Chamaecyparis 'Red Star') Chamaecyparis thyoides 'Rubicon' is a unique, juvenile-foliage form of our native white cedar discovered in 1971 by HJ Welch at Tennessee Valley Nursery. Our 15-year-old plants have formed 12' tall x 4' wide cylindrical specimens. In winter, the soft, olive foliage turns a lovely purple. Chamaecyparis 'Rubicon' forms multiple leaders, so it does have a tendency to splay open in areas with heavy, wet snow.
