Thuja occidentails 'Wintergreen' - aka 'Hetz Wintergreen'
 Overall Description
  An excellent columnar / pyramidal Thuja variety that has a good reputation for holding decent green color throughout the winter months - less bronzing / discoloration than several other Thuja varieties. Has also shown itself to have very good shade tolerance.....along with excellent cold hardiness. Growth rate in shady locations is somewhat slower that in full sun to part sun locations, but foliage density is virtually unchanged. Wintergreen Pyramidal Arborvitae makes an excellent hedge or privacy screen choice - recommended spacing of about 3-4 feet apart for a good tight hedge or screen.
Plant Facts & Specifications
Mature Height: 20-25 ft.
Mature Width:  5-6 ft ( Widest at the base - some variance has been noted in different locations )
Growth rate: Moderate to fast ( 8"-14" avg per yr )
Hardiness Zones:  4-9 ( if unsure of your zone, please use zone finder below )
Sun Exposure: Full sun to partial shade - more shade tolerant than most Arborvitae.
Soil Preference: Average to slightly acidic & sandy - well drained
Foliage Color & Texture: Typical Thuja foliage - good medium green color with average texture seen in most Thuja occidentalis varieties. Tends to hold color fairly well throughout winter, but some bronzing can be expected in very cold climates.
Flower, Cone, Or Berry Facts: Small 1/4" long cones typical of Thuja occidentalis sp. are found abundantly on this particular variety. Cones start out as pale green, and ripen into a coppery brown color in early fall. Cones contain wingless seeds.
Diseases / Insects: Bagworms and spider mites are the most common problems seen with this variety. Regular inspections ( twice a year ) are recommended to monitor for any possible infestations or problems.
Fertilization / Feeding: Either water soluble ( Miracle Gro, or equivalent ), or granular ( Holly Tone is excellent ). Other granular types with 6-12-12, or 10-10-10 ratio is acceptable. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting.
