Introducing Thuja Green Giant's 'Little Sister'
The Thuja Virginian Arborvitae
The "Virginian"™ Thuja Arborvitae is a new and distinct variety of (thuja plicata x standishii). Grows just as fast as Thuja Green Giant, but grows only 15 Ft. tall x 6 to 7 Ft. wide.
This Thuja tree is perfect for smaller yards! Deer do not favor the flavor of this type of arborvitae!
The Virginian™ is a wonderful hedging plant for today's landscapes. It enhances outdoor living spaces as a privacy screen and a windbreak. She has a full and dense foliage that is soft and feathery to the touch. The tip emerges fully leafed out and does not require pruning. It's upright habit also makes it a great specimen plant or vertical element in the landscape.
The compact size of "Virginian"™ Arborvitae makes it ideal for smaller landscapes which are chronically crowded with Leylands, Green Giants, and larger Cryptomerias that may reach 40-60' height and 15-20' width. We routinely see evergreens that must be removed after outgrowing their space.
Possibly the most important feature of "Virginian"™ is the fact that it is tolerant of the heat and high humidy of the South. It has also proven to be extremely cold-hardy as proven through Northern Ohio's harshest winter in recent memory. It has been observed to have not ice or snow damage after multiple storms.
From the edge of the Great Dismal Swamp in Suffolk, VA to the edge of Lake Erie in Ohio, "Virginian"™ Arborvitae is proving to be a versatile evergreen for today's landscapes.
Fertilizing facts :
Foliage color, yellowing of foliage can be signs of fertilizer needed.
If growth rate and needle color are normal for a particular variety, fertilization is not necessary.
It is not unusual for newly transplanted evergreens to exhibit slow growth until they're re-established.
In many landscapes, evergreens also benefit from fertilizer you apply to the lawn.
The best time to fertilize your Thuja trees is before new growth expands, around early April mid-May
Planting Tips :
(1) Dig your holes half again the width of the container they were grown in and the same depth of the container.
(2) After digging your holes, set your tree in the middle of hole.
(3) Make sure top of root ball is even with ground level, if not adjust by digging deeper or adding soil in bottom of hole and packing it good.
(4) Back fill one half way up on root ball, pack the fill good around the root ball.
(5) Finish filling hole to the top of root ball & tap down real good. If you do not pack it well, it may not hold the tree up straight after it is watered.
(6) DO NOT put soil on top of the root ball, this will cut off the oxygen to the roots.
(7) Now comes the most important part of planting! You need to mulch right away a good 3 to 4 inches deep. You don't want to let the rain wash dirt over top of the root ball and close off oxygen. Create a basin around each tree with the mulch, this guides the water to the root ball.
(8) Your trees being planted correctly is the most important part of all, its growth and survival depends on it! Be sure and keep weeds and grass from around trees, if you do not do this your trees will have a hard time getting enough water to be healthy.
LOTS OF TREES DIE DURING THE WINTER FROM LACK OF WATER!
