Special Attributes

Not as well known or available as other Arborvitae, 'Elegantissima' is a very handsome upright evergreen conifer featuring elegant, fan-like, rich-green foliage with leaves that are tipped in yellow throughout the growing season. The foliage turns attractive bronze tones in winter. Elegantissima has a good central leader and snow damage is rarely an issue. It is absolutely low-maintenance, requiring no pruning to keep its upright, pyramidal form, which makes it an excellent selection for use in tighter spaces or to frame the corners in home foundation plantings. Also a phenomenal privacy screen plant and absolutely worthy of your consideration.




Landscape & Garden Uses

With its somewhat narrow and conical form to about 15-20 feet tall and 8-10 feet wide at the base, Elegantissima Arborvitae is ideal for use as a vertical accent in tighter spaces, a single focal-point specimen, or to frame the corners in home foundation plantings. Also perfect for marking entryways, small groupings, as a background, or is perfect for evergreen privacy screen plantings. A fine addition to conifer gardens, Asian theme gardens, Xeriscape gardens (low water needs), or for use as an outdoor Christmas tree in garden beds or containers.

Suggested Spacing:  5-6' apart for solid privacy screen or hedges;  10' or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Arborvitae are very easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility, including clay soil, in full sun to light shade. For best performance we suggest a minimum of 7 hours direct sunlight. Constantly soggy or wet soils can be problematic. Maintenance is minimal; very little if any pruning ever required.
