Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This fast growing conifer boasts attractive, reddish-brown bark and aromatic, rich green foliage which hangs gracefully in drooping sprays. Thuja plicata 'Atrovirens' makes an excellent alternative to Leylandii as this conical tree is slower growing but still produces a dense hedge or magnificent stand-alone specimen tree. Growth can be 60cm (2') a year, and grown as a solitary tree, this columnar evergreen could attain 30m (100') in 40 years! However it is easily maintained at much lesser heights with regular pruning. Height: to 30m (100') if left unpruned. Spread: to 9m (30') if left unpruned.

Height Up to 3000cm (1181in)
Spread Up to 900cm (354in)
