Arborvitae - Emerald Green (Smaragd) #5 Pot
The Emerald Green Thuja is a very popular plant for hedges and screens, especially in colder climates. It can also make a good foundation plant and is sometimes planted singly as a landscape specimen plant. Occasionally, this plant is pruned to form spiral topiaries. While other members of the T. occidentalis species can be towering specimens as much as 60 feet tall, 'Emerald Green' is a semi-dwarf cultivar that has a narrow pyramid shape. The foliage consists of flat sprays of glossy bright green. The tree has urn-shaped cones about 1/2 inch long that turn reddish brown in fall. Most specimens are 7 to 15 feet in height, occasionally reaching 20 feet. It reaches a maturity size of 12 to 14 feet tall, with a spread of 3 to 4 feet.
