Fluffy™ Western Arborvitae
It’s so fluffy you want to pet it!
Thuja’s are easy shrubs that add height and texture to any garden. They are usually grown for their ability to quickly screen an area or fill up an empty space. They are very quick growers.
Thuja ‘Fluffy’ is no exception. What ‘Fluffy’ brings to the table that is different than other thuja’s is – just like its name says – fluffiness! Fluffy’s foliage is so feather-like that you just want to give it a big hug or pet it or brush it. (You can go ahead and name it like you would a new pet, if you want. We won’t tell anybody!)
The bright yellow-green foliage lends such great texture to the evergreen border that we can see this being the new go-to foundation plant. ‘Fluffy’ is very hardy and burn resistant even though it has such bright, soft needles. It doesn’t lose its color in the winter months, standing up to even blankets of snow.
‘Fluffy’ works really well with dark leaved companions like smoke trees and Chinese fringe flowers. It also is a great foil for darker green evergreens and fir trees. Honestly, you can use ‘Fluffy’ just about anywhere and be happy with the results!
You will want to add this really pretty plant to your landscape at some point, so why not now? Order today!
