Special Attributes

Named for its attractive blue cones, the Blue Cone Arborvitae is a large evergreen shrub or small tree with a dense conical form perfect for use as a hedge or privacy screen or to frame the corner of homes or other buildings. The foliage on young plants is a lighter green tinged in yellow but turns to a dark green with age. The sky-blue oval shaped cones contrast beautifully with the dark foliage. A native of China and Korea, this slection is a somewhat slow to moderate grower reaching maybe 16 to 20 feet tall and 10 to 12 feet wide at maturity.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in an upright conical form 16 to 20 feet tall and 10 to 12 feet wide, the Blue Cone Arborvitae is ideal for use as a privacy hedge or screen or as a corner plant to frame homes or other buildings. Plant one on each side of the driveway to accentuate this or other entryways. A fine addition to conifer gardens, blue theme gardens, rock gardens and formal gardens. Can also be grown in pots, planters and other containers and serves well as an outdoor decorated Christmas tree.

Suggested Spacing:  6 feet apart for solid hedges or privacy screens; 10 feet or more apart for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Arborvitae are very easy to grow and care for. They are adaptable to many soil types, including clay, and like full sun to part shade. They prefer a moist but well-drained soil. They don't like an overly dry site thought are drought tolerant when established. As with so many other ornamental plants, constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic. Maintenance is minimal with very little if any pruning ever required.
