The Arborvitae Shrub, Thuja, has become extremely popular as an evergreen in the landscape. There are many arborvitae shrub types now available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and even several color variations. Arborvitae shrubs have a more restrained growth habit than taller evergreen trees and make wonderful landscape plants. Arborvitae evergreen plants can provide four-season beauty wherever planted, and they can create an inviting look to an entry way or driveway. These plants are easy to care for and will remain attractive for long periods of time with minimal effort.
Thujas are very hardy, undemanding plants that require very little or no pruning to maintain their natural shape. Arborvitaes can adapt to a wide variety of soil conditions, and most are very cold hardy. The diminutive and very tough Hetz Midget Arborvitae makes a popular accent plant for mixed borders or containers. The Emerald Arborvitae, with its outstanding, shimmering emerald green foliage, is one of the best arborvitae for a hedge. It has a classic narrow, pyramidal form that makes it attractive in all seasons. We at Nature Hills are sure that there is just the right Arborvitae for your landscape needs!
