Here are some easy tips on how to grow Spring Grove Arborvitae plants: These lush, low-maintenance and winter-hardy evergreen shrubs grow well in many different soils, from loose loam to compacted clay. They grow best in full light, but will tolerate partial sun. Dig a planting hole 2-3 times the width of the root ball, and make sure the crown is level with the soil surface. Water your arborvitae plants well, and avoid compacting the soil; loose dirt allows the roots to establish a strong support for the shrub.
Description: Spring Grove Arborvitae plants are narrow-shaped shrubs that grow upright in columns. They top out at 20-30 ft. tall and reach 10-15 ft. wide. The foliage resists winter burn and will not bronze out or scorch in summer. Even at minus 25 degrees F, they stay a deep, dark green. These arborvitae plants have a fast growth rate of up to 3 ft. a year. The foliage is full, even down to the ground, so they provide full coverage to the landscape. Used as a privacy screen or as a bold specimen in mixed borders, Spring Grove Arborvitae plants are excellent choices for the yard.
