Go Back Arborvitae Techny

Thuja occidentalis, 'Techny'

Plant Type: Conifer Shrubs, Conifer Trees

The Techny Arborvitae is a clone of its parent plant the White Cedar or American Arborvitae. This special cultivar was found growing in the wild and due to its strong characteristics has been cloned ever since. It is a medium growing (1-2ft per year) evergreen that has a dark green soft foliage. In September of each year it “sheds ” all the growth that grew out the previous year and it drops to the ground creating a very nice mulch around the tree.
