First Editions® Chapel View™ Cedar

A beautiful evergreen for small space gardens
by Kathleen Hennessy
May 26, 2013

The compact stature of First Editions® Chapel View™ Cedar make it an excellent evergreen choice for smaller yards.

This tree keeps the traditional pyramid shape, but in a more petite form, and is easily pruned to maintain the perfect size.

Developed by Plant Introductions, Inc. and Sarah P. Duke Gardens, Chapel View’s deep blue-green needles are resistant to winter bronzing, providing a wonderful jade green backdrop to the cool season garden.
