Questions & Answers

Can this be grown in a planter in MN?

Asked by: 8951kara
Plants growing in containers need to be hardy to at least two zones lower than where you live - since the roots are not in the ground, there is no protection from the freezing and thawing that can kill plants in the winter. If you are at least in zone 5, you should be able to grow this plant in a large container. It is small enough that you could move it to a more sheltered location for the winter, sink it into the ground, or surround it on the ground with a large pile of shredded leaves, and it should make it through most winters.

Size

How tall/wide will the plant be when received?
Asked by: ibowlngolf
I believe this shrub may become larger than the 15 x15 inches stated in another answer. I've had mine in the ground (purchased as 3 gallon plants) and every one of them has grown to 15x15 in just this first year in the garden. Other sources list mature size as up to 2 feet in diameter and height.

Would rabbits eat it?

Would rabbits eat it?
Asked by: Mar
Hi Mar, there is a chance that rabbits could eat this plant. Rabbits will typically eat anything if they are hungry enough. We do have some rabbit resistant plants, such as some of our Proven Winners Sambucus, Spirea, and Buddleia. I hope this helps! If you have any additional questions, feel free to give us a call at (734) 654-7485. Thanks, Hailee

Anna's Magic Ball Arborvitae (Thuja) Live Evergreen Shrub, Green and Yellow Foliage, 1 Gal. is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 13.

These are darned hard to keep alive as they take ungodly amounts of water. Four months now and if I miss a day of watering they start to die instantly. NOT worth it! Followed planting instructions perfectly. Bought through Home Depot so was able to return the dead ones. Out of seven, only have two originals left and they look sick. Two replacements were a bit larger than the others and they are doing the best with no dead parts. I think they are shipped too young based on this.

This was the third time ordering 2 replacements for the original 7 plants ordered. 2 of the original 7 died after planting, second order to replace the 2 bad plants were inverted so they were unusable when received. The 3rd time reordering, 1 of the 2 replacements has now died.

Original plants for some reason did not do well, and died within a few days of being planted. At the time i wrote a review not recommending this product. However, PW saw my review and replaced the plants, which have thrived. Most of the plants i have i my garden are PW products from Home Depot, and all have done well and provide good curb appeal. Apparently the ones i that did not survive were an anomaly and not at all representative of the PW quality i'm used to.

I ordered 3 different orders of three of these little beauties. 6 for me and 3 for my son and daughter in law. They were all beautiful except for 1, it arrived half brown and died. I didn't contact seller because I didn't know if I wanted to return such an item (difficulty in wrapping, etc.) The items arrived super fast and nicely packaged. I will buy Proven Winners products from Home Depot in the future.

They were in pots in plastic bags in small boxes in another large box. There was no soil spilled anywhere, they were moist and looked great when I took them out. The only reason they don't get the full five stars is they are SO small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anna's Magic Ball I have just planted this Thuja and can not give a review of the growth, but for now it seems to be doing well.The important feature about this plant is that it will be dormant from mid-November until March. I also like the fact that the Evergreen remains green throughout the year. It is a Dwarf variety which means that I don't have to worry about the plant not growing too large and overwhelming the area. It appears to be easy to grow and maintain and prefers deep well drained soils. This plant also prefers Sun to 1/2 day shade.
