About This Product

Little Giant Arborvitae is a hardy evergreen shrub that naturally develops an attractive, globe-like shape. Valued for both its mature form and unique fan-shaped foliage pattern, these flattened evergreen fins give a soft, lacy appearance. Contrary to what 1 might assume from their spherical shape, Little Giant requires almost no pruning or maintenance. Ideal for borders and privacy fencing, Little Giant Arborvitae is a year-round point of interest in any application. Little Giant Arborvitae, botanical name Thuja occidentals Little Giant, grows in USDA zones 3 to 9, enjoying full sun and weekly watering best. It reaches a height and spread of 4 ft. with deep, forest green foliage. This is a highly adaptable shrub and grows quite well without any green thumb special attention. Its globe shaped form and lacy foliage has an exceptionally fine texture, making Little Giant a treat to see and touch.

Q:Are these deer resistant in the same manner as the larger Green Giant Arborvitae? Green Giant are 100% deer proof on the east coast as opposed to Emerald Green Arborvitae which are worthless when exposed to deer.

A:  I am sorry I am unable to help. I never received my order and the resolution team didn't offer to help me. They simply cancelled my order and told me to try again. Good luck with yours. I do wish for you to have a better experience.

    The plant arrived in good shape and was larger than expected. The packing held it securely in place. The plant was pretty root bound in the pot so I hope it will grow OK.

          We were expecting plants to arrive that had some size (compared to past experience with Lowe’s). Instead we get a tiny little box with three bushes wrapped up in it.

          Would have given a "5" but it hasn't been long enough. So far, all three bushes look good.
