More Information

Description No other hedge plant can hold a candle to the rapid growth and narrow, space-saving habit of Full Speed A Hedge® 'American Pillar' arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis). It solves the problem of both waiting forever for an evergreen hedge to fill in AND taking up too much space in your (and your neighbors') yard once it does. It combines the rapid growth rate of 'Green Giant' arborvitae with the compact, space-saving shape of Emerald Green arborvitae. Plant 'American Pillar' arborvitaes with their centers 2.5' apart - eight plants will provide 20' of lush, year-round privacy. With proper care, you can practically watch them grow, turning your yard into an oasis of privacy.   Note: Ships at an average size of 35" tall, floor to tip.

Very Happy!

I purchased the American Pillar Arborvitae, eight of them. I ordered in late March for delivery mid May. They came as expected, on the date I selected. Packaged well. I planted them and they’re very happy! It’s now late June & they’re doing well. I was so happy I ordered three Pearl Glam Beautyberry’s two weeks after the Arborvitae arrived. These are also doing great! I will be ordering again. Thank you!

Great value

The plants are well worth the value. I ordered from two different places and chose Great Garden based on plant health and value. They arrived pretty much intact and in good health. I will recommend them to alll my friends.
