Customer Questions & Answers

Will this tree grow in Cumming GA? Thank you.

Asked by: Gris
Hi Gris, Yes. This tree is good up until Zone 7. It looks like cumming GA falls within Zone 7 meaning it will come back year after year. It will grow about a foot and a half each year. Thank you, Shane Franklin Rogers

Asked by: mountainwoman
Hello. The 'North Pole Arborvitae prefers moist, well drained soil in a sunny site with light shade during the hot afternoon hours. With too much shade, the dense foliage will become thin. Based on the above site description, we feel the plant will grow but not thrive.

Could these be grown and thrive in large containers?

I have about 4 inches of soil and then I hit bedrock. So I either have to pay a lot to excavate/prep or grow everything in containers.
Asked by: GroovyGardenGirl
Hello. Agreed, gardening is difficult in those types of conditions. It is common practice to not fight the ground, but rather loosen the existing soil and plant the landscape on top by adding additional topsoil. The North Pole Arborvitae will definitely grow as potted plants. The plant is currently in a pot that is about 10"x10". We would suggest initially choosing a larger container with drain holes in a size that is no smaller than 16"x16". This will allow the roots to spread and the top to grow. Depending on the type of pot selected, you may need to place rocks or another heavy substrate in the bottom of the pot before planting to minimize the risk of the pot blowing over on windy days.

Hi, I have a few questions: How tall does this shrub get? How long will the shrub live? I have about a 15-20 gallon container I'll be plating this in; is that big enough for this shrub? Is this a good shrub for NY weather? Any idea as to when this will be in stock online? Thanks!

3 Gal. 3 ft. Tall North Pole Arborvitae Shrub is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arborvitaes Wasn't expecting UPS to deliver the two trees that were packaged in one very very heavy box. But overall they were boxed well . So far so good. It's been 3 weeks since I planted and they aren't dead yet.
