Emerald Green Arborvitae
Scientific/Latin Name: Thuja occidentalis “Smaragd”
This is the evergreen of choice for very narrow screens. It requires no pruning to keep its tight, compact columnar shape. Planted in sun to part shade, it will grow to 18 ft. tall and 4 ft. wide. Plant 3 ft. apart for a lustrous green screen year round. Emerald Green grows about 1 ft. per year in a wide range of soils, although it will not tolerate wet, swampy soils. In addition, the arborvitae is not salt tolerant, so avoid road-way planting.
