Thuja Occidentalis 'Degroot's Spire'


The Degroot's Spire Arborvitae is a tall, narrow evergreen perfect for a magnitude of uses in all landscapes. Keeps interest all year round with its feathery sprays of rich green foliage that takes on a purple ting in the winter. Best in full sun, but generally appreciates some light afternoon shade in hot summer climates. The Degroot's Spire Arborvitae reaches a mature height of 20 feet and mature width of 3 to 4 feet. Uses include shrub border, hedge, windbreak, perfect for an evergreen privacy screen or rich background for water features and art, wildlife garden, rock garden, beds and borders, single or paired specimen, or place in paired containers as a formal statement to an entry or drive.

Joseph's Take

Degroot's Spire is the most narrow of the privacy Arborvitae that we grow. If you have a narrow space, this is your best choice for privacy.
