Pygmy shrubs are relatively slow growing, but once established dwarf plants tend to be long lived. Pygmies are a dwarf form of otherwise larger trees in the arborvitae species, and thus they can take longer to reach maturity.
Pygmy Globe Arborvitae makes a nice hedge specimen or foundation plant, but needs to be planted in area protected from winter sun.
