The Virginian™ Arborvitae is a new, improved version of Thuja Green Giant, with all that plant’s toughness, speed of growth and reliability, but on a more compact, denser plant, with attractive, slightly pendulous young stems. It is the ideal choice where you want a dense, attractive evergreen, but don’t want a plant quite as big as Thuja Green Giant. Use it for natural screens or clipped hedges, for specimens or foundation planting. Whatever way you choose to grow it, you will appreciate this great plant, with everything its parent has but large size.

  • Compact, denser version of Thuja Green Giant
  • Unique slightly pendulous feathery young branches
  • Perfect for smaller spaces and smaller gardens
  • Fabulous for unclipped specimens and screens
  • Just as tough and easy to grow as its parent

Grow the Virginian™ Arborvitae in full sun, and it will tolerate some partial shade too. Plant it in any garden soil, from sand to clay, and acid or alkaline – this tough plant can take it. Avoid areas that are constantly damp, low-lying and not well-drained. It is hardy in all the zones from 5 to 9, and pests and diseases don’t bother it. Even deer usually leave it alone, and it can be trimmed it you want to, or left untrimmed in its natural feathery form. No matter how you grow it, you will love this new addition to the range of handsome evergreens for screening and specimens.
