Special Attributes

Got a narrow space you need to fill with a tall evergreen shrub? If so, Degroot's Spire Arborvitae might be just the plant you're looking for. Degroot Spire is an exceptionaly durable and low-maintenance evergreen conifer with an upright narrow form that is perfect for narrow spaces where an accent, hedge or screen is desired. The wavy, dark green foliage is very attractive year round. No pruning necessary!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a narrow column 12 to 15 feet in height and 2 to 3 feet wide, Degroot's Spire Arborvitae is an ideal for use as a vertical accent in home foundation plantings or landscape borders. It's the perfect choice for a narrow hedge or screen or to line driveways or property lines. It also grows well in pots and other containers where it serves as a unique centerpiece with foliage that contrasts nicely with flowers and other plants. A natural choice for conifer gardens, formal gardens, rock gardens, and the Xeriscape (low water needs).

Spacing:  18-24" for solid hedge; 5' or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Arborvitae are very easy to grow in most any average soil in full sun to part shade. A wide range of soils are tolerated, including red clay, but Arborvitae prefers moist but well-drained neutral to alkaline loamy soil. They don't like an overly dry site. Maintenance is minimal with very little if any pruning ever required.
