Overall Description

A nice, compact globe shaped arborvitae with a nice, neat, round globe shape. Requires no trimming / pruning to maintain shape. Foliage is quite dense, and a glossy emerald green in color. Turns slightly golden / bronze / green in colder weather. Has proven to be quite hardy....especially when compared to many dwarf forms. Likes full sun - will accept part shade as well. Excellent for use as accents in most any landscape, or also impressive when planted in rows as a border around porches, patios, steps, and walkways.
Of all the dwarf sized globe shaped Arborvitae we grow / offer, this variety tends to be best suited of them all for use in colder climates. Very popular in many landscapes

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend POOPeas for use with all of evergreen species. However, either water soluble ( Miracle Gro, or equivalent ), or granular fertilizers ( Holly Tone is excellent ) are also good options. Most any granular fertilizers with a 6-12-12, or 10-10-10 ratio are also acceptable. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. POOPeas may be used at anytime.
