The Emerald Green Arborvitae is one of the most popular varieties of these strong, adaptable evergreens. Its narrow growth habit and bright green foliage make for a wonderful addition to most landscapes. Often seen planted in rows, this tall, multi-stemmed shrub is perfect for use as a screen or a hedge. Its scale-like leaves are vertical flat sprays that hold their emerald green color all year long. Though requiring little to no pruning, the low maintenance Emerald Green Arborvitae should be pruned in early spring, if needed. Extremely cold hardy.
