Quick Overview:

Narrow-growing, upright thuja for small spaces. Very fine textured, green to cream-green foliage on orange-brown stems. This plant is heat-tolerant and a good vertical accent plant for small spaces or use in a mixed border.

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.
