Quick Overview:

This American arborvitae cultivar is a semi-dwarf, evergreen shrub with a compact, narrowly pyramidal habit. Glossy bright green, scale-like foliage in flat sprays. Urn-shaped cones to 1/2″ long mature in autumn to reddish brown. Most often seen as a 7-15′ (infrequently to 20′) tall shrub with a spread of 3-4′. Cultivar is synonymous with and sometimes also called ‘Emerald’ or ‘Emerald Green’. This arborvitae is commonly used for topiaries in the landscape.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Foliage density loosens up in too much shade. Tolerates wide range of soils with the exception of wet, poorly drained soils. Likes humid weather with regular rains. In hot and dry weather, periodic, deep waterings are advisable, especially when shrubs are grown as foundation plants. Appreciates a good root zone mulch. Prune in early spring before onset of new growth.  This shrub is usually available in multiple sizes.
