Thuja Green Giant

A superior Arborvitae from the U.S. National Arboretum that will grow to 60ft or more in height, at the fantastic rate of up to 3ft a year! All this while keeping its glossy, green color in winter and maintaining a tight and uniform, conical shape. One tree makes an impressive specimen but many planted together will become a fast-growing, year-round, living screen or hedge. Widely adaptable to different soils and resistant to pests and diseases. No wonder 'Green Giant' won the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's Gold Medal Plant Award in 1998.

Although a small genus of six evergreen Conifers native to North America and East Asia, Thuja is important as a source of timber and ornamental trees and shrubs. You might know the weather-resistant wood of White Cedar (Thuja occidentalis) and Western Red Cedar (T. plicata) as the material of choice for fence posts, shingles, greenhouses, and other outdoor structures. A great number of varieties are available, selected for unusual form, color, texture, or growth rate, and are useful as specimen trees or in hedges, or in the case of dwarf forms, in rock gardens and foundation plantings. Grow in average to moist, well-drained soil.
