An evergreen with scale-like leaves, arborvitae (Thuja) is a popular choice for hedges because of its tall, narrow growth habit. It can also be used as a focal point in a mixed border of shrubs and flowers and is frequently used in foundation plantings. Smaller varieties are a great choice for containers or patios. Most arborvitaes are easy to grow and require very little maintenance throughout the season. The only drawback is that arborvitae needs well-draining soil to thrive, so keep them away from low-lying areas where water tends to collect.
Meadows Farms Nurseries carries a large supply of arborvitae, both large upright forms, and lower shrub forms. The varieties below are just a sampling of arborvitae that we carry. Be advised that sizes and availability do vary by location so be sure to contact your local Meadows Farms retail nursery for size, pricing, and availability information.
