This marvelous form of our native eastern white cedar has rich green foliage that is heavily speckled yellow. Although books say that the foliage burns in the South, we have not let our plants read these books and, consequently, no burn. I'll bet the burning was a result of very dry soils. Expect this informal, conical, upright-shaped conifer to reach 10' at maturity. Imagine plugging a red cedar into an electric socket, and you'll get the right image.
