Incense cedar is a tough, easy-to-grow evergreen conifer that is native to the Pacific Northwest. Its narrow, upright form has a formal, stately appearance that only improves with age. Its dark green foliage is soft to the touch and has a wonderful cedar-like fragrance that permeates the air in warm weather. It makes an excellent vertical accent or a backdrop in the landscape.
