And everything nice!

Contrasts are cool. They are eye-catching, vibrant and never boring. Think of zebra stripes, soft-drink logos and Warhol paintings. Things that play off of each other often play well together, too.

Sugar and Spice Arborvitae (Thuja plicata 'De Rakt’) is a study in contrasts. The foliage is finely textured for an almost feathery, fluffy look in a dreamy creamy green. The stems are cinnamon-brown and rough textured and we couldn’t imagine them any other way.

Growing 12’ high, but only 3’ wide, Sugar and Spice is a perfect shrub for smaller urban gardens where a full-sized Thuja would crowd everything else out. They look great singly as specimen plants or in groups as a hedge-break. Try them in a large mixed planting container or flanking a doorway or gate. They can be viewed from a distance or right up close and are fascinating either way. Sugar and Spice Arborvitae will add depth and architectural beauty to your garden with very little care. You won’t need to prune it for it to keep its great conical shape and you won’t need to worry about it losing its color. It is a hardy evergreen that won’t disappoint you.

Order yours and see for yourself!
