Reliable Color and Fine Landscape Texture Year Round
Arborvitae are solid standards in the garden. These very hardy evergreens are great at grounding a foundation planting or perennial border. They are naturally conical and very tidy, so they don’t need to be pruned unless you want to make them into a hedge. They are very low-maintenance.
Holmstrup is one of the smaller of the arborvitaes, so it does well in a smaller garden. (At its tallest, it is only 8 feet!) It can replace boxwood if you want to keep it trimmed as a low hedge. It looks great in a large container, too. Two urns flanking your front door planted with Holmstrup and trailing vines add an instant designer touch to your home.
Holmstrup has a great texture. The fern-like foliage makes the shrub appear “fluffy”. People often call this the cuddly shrub. But don’t let the soft texture fool you. This is one tough evergreen, holding its greenery throughout the winter.
Holmstrup is an exceptional and versatile Arborvitae variety for its color and fine-textured appearance in your landscape. You can always find room for this well-mannered shrub. Plant it where you need some architectural interest or to give a loose planting bed some structure.
