Little Giant Arborvitae Hedge

Little Giant Arborvitae is a top choice for landscapers wanting to create a formal or smaller hedgerow. This low-maintenance shrub grows 4 ft. tall with a similar spread, making it ideal for planting along walkways, property boundaries or foundations. Grow it like a boxwood to create a formal, English-style hedge. Little Giant's rich green, fine-textured foliage is evergreen, providing year-round color and an attractive backdrop for perennials. Hedges give landscapes a professional look while offering many garden solutions, including creating windbreaks and providing for wildlife. Arborvitae are a top choice for hedges because they're native to the United States, low maintenance and easy to grow. Little Giant Arborvitae Hedge is an affordable solution for landscapers. For best results, plant Little Giant in full sun to partial shade.
