Quick Overview:

The Virginian™ Arborvitae is a new, improved version of Thuja Green Giant, with all that plant’s toughness, speed of growth and reliability, but on a more compact, denser plant, with attractive, slightly pendulous young stems. It is the ideal choice where you want a dense, attractive evergreen, but don’t want a plant quite as big as Thuja Green Giant. Use it for natural screens or clipped hedges, for specimens or foundation planting.

Description

Best grown in moist, fertile, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Tolerates somewhat wide range of soils and some dry conditions. Best in full sun, but generally appreciates some light afternoon shade in hot summer climates. For screens, plant trees 7-10′ apart. Plant trees further apart for other uses.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Gardens Plant Finder)
