About This Product

The Northern Spire Arborvitae is a cultivar of the Western red cedar, Thuja plicata. It is a relatively new addition to the landscaping scene, prized for its compact and columnar growth habit, making it suitable for smaller gardens or as a focal point in larger landscapes. Size: It typically grows to be around 10 to 15 ft. tall and 2 to 3 ft. wide at maturity. Foliage: The foliage consists of flattened sprays of scale-like leaves that are typically bright green in color. In the winter, the foliage may take on a slightly bronze hue. Shape: The Northern Spire Arborvitae has a narrow, columnar shape, which makes it an excellent choice for vertical accents in the landscape or for use as a privacy screen or windbreak. Hardiness: This cultivar is generally hardy in USDA zones 4 to 9, making it suitable for a wide range of climates. Maintenance: It is relatively low-maintenance once established, requiring little to no pruning. However, it benefits from regular watering, especially during dry periods and well-drained soil. Uses: The Northern Spire Arborvitae is often used as a specimen plant, in groupings for a vertical accent, or as a privacy screen or windbreak. Its compact size and upright growth habit also make it suitable for planting in containers. Overall, the Northern Spire Arborvitae is a versatile and attractive evergreen tree that adds year-round interest to the landscape with its elegant form and vibrant foliage.

      Ordered two was sent one. Top stem portion was bent and broken; this appears to be a systemic issue from past reviews.
