Design IdeasThis bright small arborvitae is exceptional in limited city gardens and courtyards with trying conditions as small hedge or spherical semiformal accents. This form is exceptional for spare modern design gently clipped to geometric perfection. Use in beds and borders to add interest for the winter months, particularly under snow, when all else is bare. Adapts beautifully to wild and rock gardens where they are exceptional. A problem solver for formal gardens in dry climates of the Southwest where boxwood and other conifers suffer. Makes a fine container foliage plant for porch, patio and terrace.
