The Arborvitae Skybound, Thuja occidentalis 'Skybound', is an exceptionally hardy evergreen shrub or small tree with a rigid columnar habit of growth and rich dark green scale-like foliage.
The scale-like leaves do not develop any appreciable fall color and the flowers are not ornamentally significant. This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and usually looks its best without pruning, although it will tolerate pruning.
Skybound will grow to be about 18 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 1 foot from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines.
It grows at a slow rate and does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out.
Seen as an ultimate pillar in your landscape, Arborvitae Skybound can also be used to create a screen, a tall hedge, or accent a building!
