Thuja occidentalis ‘Filiformis’– Threadleaf Arborvitae is a form of American Arborvitae with very unique foliage. The leaves are tightly held to the branches giving the appearance of bright green thin ropes growing from all edges of the plant. It has an upright, globose habit, growing more than 6 inches annually and eventually reaching a height of 6 feet. It enjoys good soil moisture along with good drainage in full sun. A position towards the back of a rock garden would show this unusual looking plant nicely.
Thuja occidentalis ‘Snowtip’ – A variegated form of White Cedar that has dark green foliage with creamy white tips, this cultivar is slow growing to a height of 8 to 10 feet. Plant ‘Snowtip’ as a specimen, a grouping, or an attractive hedge, making sure that plenty of soil moisture is available. Full sun is required and occasional shearing is beneficial to keep it full.
