Little Giant Arborvitae


Little Giant Arborvitae Are Round and Soft But Make a Giant Impact!

This Arborvitae is a globe shaped slow-growing evergreen with typical arborvitae soft foliage. Little Giant keeps its natural rounded growth habit and doesn’t get much larger than 3 to 4 feet tall & wide. It is one of few evergreen shrubs that naturally grows in a globe shape without any pruning. These thuja evergreen shrubs prefer full sun with well drained soil. Little Giant has few known disease or pest issues and are deer resistant.

Little Giant Arborvitae is very versatile.  They look great using them as foundation plants. It is a great alternative to the over-used boxwood evergreen shrubs you see in front of so many homes. Little Giant are also popular used as a hedge or in containers.  Spacing Little Giant Arborvitae about 3 feet apart when planting will create a nice, neat row of fluffy evergreen balls.
