More Information

Description Tater Tot™ arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis) is an irresistible dwarf conifer that you’ll want to add to your garden! It naturally grows as a cute little globe of fragrant, scalloped, evergreen foliage. It’s perfect as a shapely specimen in your landscape, to add structure and interest to your perennial garden, or as part of your rock garden or dwarf conifer collection. Also nice in containers, and holds on to lights very well for holiday décor. This versatile little evergreen from Proven Winners isn’t fussy about soil and can grow well in sun or part shade. Details Botanical name: Thuja occidentalis 'SMNTOBAB'
Patent #: USPP 30761
Common name: Arborvitae, Eastern red cedar
Zone: 3 - 8
Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 1-2' tall and wide
Flower color: Evergreen conifer, does not flower
Foliage color: Green
Season of Interest: Year-round
Uses: Specimen, rock gardens, containers.
How To Grow Soil: Best grown in moist, fertile, well-drained soils. Tolerates somewhat wide range of soils and some dry conditions. Poorly drained and wet sites should be avoided.
Light: Full sun (6 hrs direct light daily), Partial sun/shade (4-6 hrs light daily)
Water: Keep moist. Water 1 inch a week. Appreciates well-drained soil.
Spacing: 2 ft
Fertilizing: Top dress in spring with a slow-release, balanced fertilizer.
Winterizing: Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder zones. Tolerates wind once established and withstands heavy ice or snow. Darkens or bronzes slightly in the winter. Note -- The oldest interior branchlets on arborvitae usually turn brown and fall off in autumn. This aging process is different from drought stress, which on arborvitae appears on the tree outside the interior foliage as an abnormal yellowing or browning, known as flagging. This discoloration may not occur until a season or two after the drought stress was most severe.
Maintenance & Pruning: Requires little or no pruning but can be sheared easily if necessary.   If pruning, avoid pruning in late summer or fall as pruning stimulates new growth, which can be easily damaged by fall and winter temperatures.

Tater Tot

So far, so good. I understand the first year of a perennial is focused on the root system. The second year will start to expand and the third year should reach maturity. Well, this is the first year. They look great, but still tiny. Thank you. Gaylord, MI

Happy with my purchase except for two of the tater tots

Love ordering plants from you because you offer exactly what I am looking for. Many of the nurseries locally don't carry exactly what I am looking for as my space is limited. All of my tater tots are doing well except for two. They have turned yellow. I have check with a moisture meter daily so it's not due to overwatering or underwatering.

Hello! Thank you for leaving us feedback. It sounds like you're doing an excellent job caring for your new plants. It's hard for us to know exactly what is going on without a little more information. Can you email photos of the plants to info@greatgardenplants.com. If you can share a little bit more about their location, lighting, and the weather you've been experiencing. Our horticultural experts think this could be due to heat stress, but they need a little more info to guide you appropriately. We do have an extensive article on arborvitae care that you can find here: https://blog.greatgardenplants.com/questions-answered-series-arborvitae-thuja/
Happy Gardening!
