Description Looking for the perfect narrow privacy hedge plant or specimen? Look no further than 'Hetz Wintergreen' Arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis). This rapidly growing evergreen shrub can grow over 2 feet per year, reaching 15-25 feet tall. The foliage keeps its attractive dark green color year-round without taking on winter bronzing we see in other Thujas. It's excellent for screening without outgrowing the landscape! Wintergreen Arborvitae is also highly adaptable to any growing condition or garden soil, making it easy to grow. A simple shearing in early spring is all it takes to keep this colorful, adaptable, and fragrant evergreen shrub in bounds! Note: Ships at an average size of 3 feet tall, floor to tip.

Received 5 lush and healthy plants!

After all the plants I’ve purchased from Great Garden Plants, it is time I finally wrote a review!

I live in a town that is wall-to-wall nurseries, 99% of which sell wholesale. The few that sell retail sell plants that you see everywhere- kind of a generic offering across the board. I purchase most of my perennials from GGP because if the size and quality of their plants. One pricey catalog supplier who is local and also sells retail has minuscule plants that may or not survive - and they’re 15 minutes away. I have replaced THEIR plants with GGP’s version of the same plant and got plants that were double in size.

The plants are packaged in pairs - or more if the plant is a smaller type of plant. Well-wrapped in plastic, boxed leaves-to-leaves in boxes that do NOT let the plants move, then places in a sturdy outer box. I have always received healthy plants with moist soil - some even in bloom! Fat and healthy the first year, they really take off the second year.

This is the 3rd year we’ve been in our new-construction house and our gardens look fantastic! And most of the plants were ordered here!
