Thuja Full Speed A Hedge® 'American Pillar' - arborvitae Description

Full Speed A Hedge® - ‘American Pillar’ arborvitae is practically a miracle of speed, coverage, and beauty!

We know, that’s a big claim. But no other hedge plant can hold a candle to this variety’s rapid growth rate and narrow, space-saving habit. 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.

Plant ‘American Pillar’ arborvitaes with their centers 2.5’ apart. With proper care (regular water, fertilizer in spring), you can practically watch them grow, and watch as they create the lush, evergreen privacy you’ve been missing.
