Tiny Tot™ Western Arborvitae
Perfectly round shrub needs no pruning!
Thuja’s are shrubs that landscapers turn to when they need to quickly screen an area or fill up an empty space. Thuja’s are usually tall and thick and grow very quickly.
Thuja ‘Tiny Tot’ is the exception to that rule. This Thuja only grows 1-2’ tall and is just a little taller than it is wide. It is an almost perfectly round orb of deep green. It is covered in swirling whorls of foliage that give it a rich texture and movement.
The bright, deep green foliage lends such great look to the evergreen border that we can see this being a new go-to for foundation landscaping. ‘Tiny Tot’ is very hardy and burn resistant. It doesn’t fade in the winter, and is just as captivating in the heat of the summer as under blankets of snow in the winter. It grows faster than other ball-type thuja’s to reach its full height.
‘Tiny Tot’ works really well as a low-maintenance hedge or border. It blends well with maroon and golden leaved companions. It also is a great foil for larger thuja, evergreens and fir trees. ‘Tiny Tot’ is happy as a focal point or as a team player. Try it in a row lining a path or in pairs as sentry’s by the front door.
