Thuja occidentalis 'Danica'
|Description||A versatile, dwarf, globe-shaped conifer featuring bright emerald green foliage that turns blue-green in winter. Smaller even than the popular Hetz Mini Arborvitae, Danica is an excellent choice for borders, foundation plantings, or low hedges. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 2 ft. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hedge|
|Design Ideas||Plant a low, informal hedge of this evergreen to divide parts of the garden or between properties where it will partition without blocking views. It also makes a fine accent at the base of an arbor or gate.|
|Companion Plants||Maiden Grass (Miscanthus); Juniper (Juniperus); Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Barberry (Berberis); Lilac (Syringa)|
|Care||Thrives in enriched, evenly moist, loamy, well-drained soils; dislikes dry conditions. Provide afternoon shade in hot summer regions and protect from harsh winds. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize in early spring. Prune lightly, only as needed to shape.|
