Arborvitae are a classic choice for hedges and screening, but they also make excellent specimen plants, additions to perennial borders or other gardens, and even look lovely in containers for an evergreen accent.Maintenance Notes:
Little to no pruning is required. If you do wish to prune, do so in late spring/early summer, after the new growth has emerged. Avoid cutting into any very thick stems unless you are removing them entirely, as this can leave an unsightly hole in the plant and recovery from such cuts is typically slow.Cheer Drops® Thuja occidentalis 'SMNTDGT' USPP 33,286, Can PBRAF
