Green Giant Arborvitae
The Green Giant Arborvitae is a quick-growth, fragrant, tall, evergreen tree. It grows into a tall and attractive pyramidical shape. It grows best in USDA plant hardiness zones 5 to 8 in either full sunshine or a sun-shade mix.
Besides the quick growth habit and lovely appearance, some gardeners love this plant for its robust nature. It resists many challenges, including disease, insects, deer, mold, wind, drought, heat, and frost.
The tree is also aromatic, with a soft pine fragrance.
This grand evergreen takes its name from its size. If you provide excellent growing conditions, this species can grow as much as four feet per year. It eventually reaches a maximum height of sixty feet, although the average is fifty feet tall.
So, what are those optimal growing conditions? About an inch of water per week, well-drained soil, organic compost or earthworm castings, and an insulating layer of mulch for the winter. That's it!
The grand evergreen is incredibly self-sufficient. Once its roots strengthen, it will need little help, except during extended drought or providing mulch before the snow flies.
The Green Giant Arborvitae Is a Beautiful Addition to Your Yard
Many gardeners purchase several of these, planting them several feet apart. They become a natural windbreak, snow fence, or privacy screen as they grow.
The wood is a deep brown with a green tinge and has some furrowing. The branches are slim but strong enough to stand against the forces of nature. The needles form in beautiful, flattened sprays at the tips of branches. The tree grows triangular with a narrow top and broad bottom.
