Product Description

Dwarf Thuja Shrub

If you're looking for a green plant to accent a rock garden, as a border or even to form a hedge, the Hetz Midget Aborvitae is the perfect solution. An evergreen plant, it retains its foliage?—flat sprays that are soft and leafy to the touch?—year round. Its versatility renders it useful in so many applications.

Beautiful and Hardy
This conifer is both beautiful and hardy. It produces inconspicuous green cones that remain well hidden among the bluish-green foliage. It is also resistant to mites, bagworms and canker, meaning you'll have little worry when it comes to diseases and insects. However, don't be surprised if it attracts deer to your yard as they tend to find it a good snack. Just get the camera ready for some real Kodak moments. You can reasonably expect the Hetz Midget Arborvitae to last on the upwards of 30 years with exceptional care.

Soft Prune Only
While it is a hardy plant, it requires moderate watering, especially in the early stages when it is still developing its root system. It retains its dome shape naturally, meaning you'll never have to prune it unless you want to. If you do decide to prune the Hetz Midget Arborvitae, do a soft prune, only trimming off newer growths, otherwise you run the risk of damaging the plant.

Adaptability
While many plants only thrive in certain conditions, the Hetz Midget Arborvitae is exceptionally adaptable. Use it as a container plant on a patio or balcony or even plant it in a rock garden and watch it thrive. In the winter, you'll appreciate a touch of greenery among snow beds, especially when other plants seem to hibernate or perish in the cold. While it prefers sandy soil to really flourish, it will survive in nearly any soil type, especially when fertilized properly.
