The Hot Head® Arborvitae is a breakthrough new plant that brings us the greenest compact arborvitae in existence. This dense, rounded plant has lush green foliage all year round, with absolutely no winter bronzing. For that classic, rounded green evergreen, it simply can’t be beaten. It grows to 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide in ten years, and then adds a couple of inches every year. It needs no trimming to keep it compact, making it ideal for foundation planting around your home, specimens in beds, low borders, and in planter boxes and containers. Wherever you need a rounded, compact, green, green bush, this is the #1 choice.

  • Best rich-green arborvitae there is
  • The greenest green all year round
  • Natural compact rounded form needs no trimming
  • Easily grown in the coldest states
  • Equally reliable in warm zones too

Grow the Hot Head® Arborvitae in full sun or partial shade. Some afternoon shade in hot zones will suit it well, especially in summer. It is hardy from zones 2 or 3 to zone 8, and in containers from zone 5 to zone 8. It grows easily in ordinary garden soil, enjoying good drainage and moist soil, but growing well in all but the driest and wettest soils. It has no pests or diseases, and some evergreen fertilizer in spring will keep it growing vigorously and at the maximum green possible. No trimming is needed to keep its dense, compact form looking absolutely perfect.
