The Little Giant Arborvitae is the perfect plant if you want a round green ball, of medium size, without needing to clip or trim it. It grows steadily into a near-perfect sphere 2 feet tall and wide, ultimately reaching about 4 feet in both directions. It stays green all year round, without winter bronzing or burning, and it is incredibly hardy, all the way through zone 4. It grows well in warmer areas too, up to and including zone 7. Grow it as part of the foundation planting around your home, in the front of beds for accents, or in rows or groups for a formal look. It fits perfectly into planters and pots, giving that neat, round look, but needing no clipping at all.

  • Perfect spherical form without clipping
  • Medium size – 2 to 4 feet – for smaller gardens
  • Very cold hardy into zone 4
  • Stays green all winter long
  • Easily grown even in damp soils

The Little Giant Arborvitae should be planted in full sun or light shade. It grows easily in all soils, including damp ones, but not in areas completely saturated with water continuously. It has moderate drought resistance when established, and grows best in moist soil, enriched with organic material. It benefits when young from some evergreen fertilizer in spring and fall, it has no significant pests or diseases, and this plant is extremely easy to grow. For busy gardeners who still like their plants neat, nothing beats it, especially in the coldest regions.
