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 a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
