Go Back Arborvitae Primo

Thuja occidentalis Primo

Plant Type: Conifer Shrubs, Conifer Trees, Dwarf Conifers


Rich, deep green summer color combines with the compact textural foliage and naturally sculpted spire-like shape making this new selection an unexpected breakthrough for the hardy common Arborvitae. With a muted green winter color, a very young tree has proportions perfect for mini-scapes or container gardening. As it ages, an elegant small tree develops. The natural character as a specimen is the finest quality a conifer can offer the landscape in either cold or moderate climates. Primo!
