What is Thuja occidentalis
Smelly cypress ( Scientific name: Thuja occidentalis) is an evergreen coniferous shrub native to eastern North America, belonging to the family Cupressaceae. It is a cone-shaped tree with horizontal branches. It produces white or light red flowers in spring. The flowers are cold- and heat-tolerant, resistant to disease and insect damage, and the tree is easy to care for because of its natural shape. The leaves have a nice fragrance when rubbed. The cones are thin and ovate, and the seeds have wings. It is used for hedges because of its resistance to trimming.
