Grew one at our earlier residence. Grew another at our current residence. Very easy, but they had tendency to lean to one side unless propped with guide slings for the first year or so. We've had our current cedar for eight years. It's very healthy, and no fuss at all.

Purcahsed in late spring 07 for $79 in Wilmington NC. I pruned a few limbs to promote even growth and good ventilation because the weeping of limbs. Planted southwest in full sun, zone 8. During the summer the tips and edges of foliage exhibit gold in full sun by winter foliage turns emerald green and branches are reddish brown. Pictures from summer to winter 08.
