The Dark Green Arborvitae is a selected evergreen well-known for its rich, very dark-green foliage. It is reliably green all year round, even in harsh winters, and it doesn’t yellow or bronze. It grows 20 to 30 feet tall in time, with a slender pyramidal shape, just 5 to 10 feet wide. It is perfect for specimens or hedges, trimmed or untrimmed, and it makes an attractive accent among your plants. This bush is very easy to grow and thrives in cold places. Grow it to fill the corners of your yard, cover blank walls and fences, and as a striking accent bush in planters or pots.

  • Reliable rich green coloring all year round
  • Dense, upright pyramidal evergreen
  • Easily trimmed into hedges and formal shapes
  • Very resistant to cold without yellowing or browning
  • Easily grown in ordinary garden conditions

Full sun is ideal for the Dark Green Arborvitae, but it also tolerates a little light shade. It is completely hardy even in zone 3. It grows well in ordinary garden conditions, thriving in all but the driest soils, and growing well in wet ground too. It is normally free of pests or diseases, and once established it will tolerate normal summer drought periods. It can be trimmed from spring to fall, and a little fertilizer will keep it vigorous, lush, and dark, dark green.
