PLANT DESCRIPTIONS & FACTS
Thuja Plicata x standishii 'Green Giant'
VERY FAST GROWING !!! A very vigorous growing hybrid arborvitae - fastest growing of all the arbs. Nice pyramidal shape with dense, rich green foliage that has a graceful fernlike texture. Can be used as either a single specimen tree, or as a nice big windbreak, hedge, or screen.
Recommended spacing of 6-7 feet apart when used as a screen / border. Good growth rates - best of all the Thujas.......but beware of many false / exaggerated growth claims being published throughout the industry these days!! From our experience with this hybrid, growth can be expected to be between 2-4 feet per year in average conditions. Obviously, growth may be more in very favorable conditions - and substantially less in poorer conditions. We have personally seen claims of 5-6 feet......or more per year advertised. Sorry folks, just not gonna happen. They grow fast, but that is stretching it just a bit.

Fertilization / Feeding:
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend
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.
may be used at anytime.
Additional Features & Characteristics:
Green Giant Arborvitae has shown itself to have exceptional drought tolerance, and a fairly low overall water requirement once established.
This variety has shown some discoloration ( bronzing ) during the coldest winter months. Bronzing will be most noticeable in colder climates, or in areas where trees are exposed to high winds along with cold temps.
