Love the look but sick of boxwoods? You can get that same English-style formal garden with Little Giant Arborvitae, for a cheeky little twist on a classic design. It's very compact for an arborvitae, tidy and lush with gorgeous rich color. It'll start as the perfect backdrop for your spring bulb collection and continue on as defining structure through summer and into fall. For years to come, you can depend on Little Giant. This is offered as a starter hedge collection, so we'll send you ten Little Giant Arborvitae shrubs. That's ideal for creating those long, strong lines in the landscape. Put it along a walkway to minimize time spent shoveling snow, or along a garden bed to block harsh, drying winds from your more delicate plants.
