Special Attributes

Emerald Green Arborvitae is an upright, conical-shaped evergreen conifer featuring attractive, dark emerald green foliage. It is absolutely low-maintenance, requiring no pruning to keep its upright, narrow pyramidal form, which makes it an excellent selection for use in tight spaces or to frame the corners in home foundation plantings or as an evergreen screen or hedge in situations where space is limited.




Landscape & Garden Uses

With its narrow, conical form to about 12-15 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide, Emerald Green Arborvitae is ideal for use as a vertical accent in tight spaces or to frame the corners in home foundation plantings. Also perfect for a mid-height evergreen privacy screen or hedge in situations where space is limited. A fine addition to conifer gardens and the Xeriscape (low water needs) or for use as an outdoor Christmas tree in garden beds or containers.

Suggested Spacing:  2.5 to 3' apart for solid privacy screen or hedges;  6' 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.
