  • SPRING GROVE® Western Arborvitae

    Spring Grove® arborvitae might be the largest shrub in the line of Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs, but it has a lot to offer! It’s a fast-growing selection of the beautiful, striking North American native Western arborvitae (Thuja plicata). That makes it an ideal choice for planting a lush privacy hedge that creates a storybook setting for any home, business, museum, or church. Though Western arborvitae aren’t quite as hardy as their Eastern counterpart (Thuja occidentalis), they do show better deer resistance, so with protection, may be a better choice as for an evergreen hedge for those who struggle with deer damage to their plants and landscapes.

    Why grow Spring Grove arborvitae?

    • Fast growing for speedy coverage
    • Evergreen foliage has a thick, glossy, “braided” look
    • Tall, broad habit provides privacy from the side and from above

  • PEARL GLAM® Beautyberry

    Beautyberry (known botanically as Callicarpa) always lives up to its name in late summer/early autumn, when its elegant, arching branches are covered with a huge crop of the most unbelievably purple berries. However, most beautyberries are less than thrilling up until that point. Pearl Glam® beautyberry changes all of that, thanks to elegant dark purple foliage from spring through frost. It also boasts a neat, upright habit that takes up far less valuable garden real estate than the old sprawling varieties. Pearl Glam beautyberry does not need a separate variety to pollinate it – it is self-fruitful and will develop a showy crop of purple fruits even if you plant just one. This is a very nice choice for cut flower arrangements as well as in the garden or landscape.

    Why grow Pearl Glam beautyberry?

    • Dark purple foliage keeps it interesting all season, not just in late summer when it fruits
    • Tons of clusters of perfectly round purple berries in late summer/fall
    • Space-saving upright habit takes up far less space than conventional beautyberries
