Thuja Smaragd Hedging If you are looking for a reliable evergreen conifer that serves well as a hedging plant, then Thuja Smaragd is an ideal candidate. Thuja occidentalis Smaragd, to give it its full botanical name, is also known as White Cedar Smaragd or Thuja Emerald. The many common names of this cultivar all describe its most recognisable feature: the stunning green hue of its aromatic foliage. Smaragd is German for emerald, the precious stone which shares its colour with this conifer.
Due to its lush foliage that is also colour resistant in winter and attractive conical habit, this variety is mostly used for hedging. Unlike some evergreens, Thuja Smaragd Hedging will not lose its vivid colours or turn to brownish hues when temperatures drop below zero. Thuja Smaragd Hedging is easy to care for and offers extraordinary visual interest- it is no wonder that this particular potted thuja is one of our bestsellers.
Height and Spread of Thuja Smaragd The fact that Thuja Smaragd Hedging has a slower growth rate than its close relatives is just one of the many qualities that make it ideal for hedges and containers. Its expected maximum size is about 5 metres once fully mature.
How Hardy Is Thuja Smaragd White Cedar is fully hardy in the United Kingdom. In fact, this thuja variety is well suited to the British climate and has a coveted Award of Garden Merit by Royal Horticultural Society for its outstanding resistance and good constitution.
How To Use Thuja Smaragd While Thuja Smaragd Hedging is ideally suited to serve as a highly attractive evergreen conifer hedge, its dense growth affording privacy.
How To Care For Thuja Smaragd Thuja Smaragd dislikes wet soils, so make sure that your conifer is planted in rich soils that drains well. Place the container in a spot in full sun to make sure your plants thrive.
The dense, columnar habit of the Thuja Smaragd Hedging is natural- there is very little pruning and trimming required to keep this stunning conifer in perfect form.
