A Great Privacy Tree That Stays Dark Green All Winter


The Nigra Arborvitae, also known as the 'Dark Green' Arborvitae, is a hardy, low maintenance tree. It's a great choice as a privacy screen, and perfect as a hedge or natural fence.


It is one of the best varieties for cold climates. Unlike some evergreens, 'Nigra' will keep its dark green color all winter long.


Scale-like leaves are ovate, mid to dark-green on top, lighter beneath. Females bear small cones with a small terminal hook on each scale. The Nigra has good disease and insect resistance.


This low maintenance arborvitae needs full sun to partial shade and prefers sandy loam to clay loam. Useful as a specimen, accent, windscreen, or commonly used in foundation plantings.


This low-maintenance tree is a popular landscaping tree. It makes one of the finest year-round hedges that form a natural fence around your home. Very hardy, very green, and very dense!
