Juniperus virginiana 'Brodie' is a highly regarded eastern red cedar cultivar which offers an attractive and slender, upright, growth habit up to 35-45' feet tall, but only 6-10' wide. With its dark green, scaly textured foliage, 'Brodie' lend a lot of elegance to the landscape, but is cold hard and resistant to a number of environmental threats, including drought, salt, deer damage, and poor soils.
As a dioecious plant, male redcedars will produce pollen cones through the spring and summer, while female plants produce berry-like structures in the late summer and fall which are highly attractive to native songbirds including the cedar waxwing; this cultivar is an all-female form which produces bright blue berry-like cones in the autumn months. Perfect for grouping to form a border hedge, Juniperus virginiana 'Brodie' has an excellent and distinctive winter color in rusty shades of red, adding even further multi-season appeal to an already great evergreen selection. 'Brodie' is not at all picky about soil type, as long as it's well draining, and works perfectly grown together for privacy screens, windbreaks, and border hedges, as well as independently for specimen plantings.
