This is a greatly improved form of Arborvitae, with denser, fuller foliage, especially at the top of the tree, and also a slightly broader shape that covers more ground. With its rich green, beautifully textured foliage, this superb evergreen is one of the best choices available today for creating a tall hedge, and also makes a beautiful specimen for a larger yard or meadow. Matures to 15-20' tall and 5-8' wide in 10 years. Easy and carefree to grow, it becomes more heat and drought tolerant with age, and needs no care at all once established! Zones 5-8. 4" pot.
