    FLUFFY® Arborvitae

    Fluffy® Western arborvitae (Thuja plicata) is a beacon of color and touchable texture in the landscape or garden. It naturally grows as a narrow pyramid of shiny “fans” of golden foliage that have an unusual braided look to them. As a Western arborvitae, it is more resistant to deer damage than the standard Eastern arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis), but it should still be protected in areas where deer visit, especially as a young plant. Though it resists burning, a good 2-3″/5-7cm layer of shredded bark mulch over the roots is recommended to help retain soil moisture, especially in winter.

    Why grow Fluffy arborvitae?

    •  Evergreen foliage is a bright, cheerful gold all year-round
    • Thick, glossy foliage has a braided texture
    • Equally suited to being grown as a dramatic specimen, paired at an entryway for formality, or as an unexpected hedge or screen

  • BRILLIANTINA™ Abelia

    If the details delight you, prepare to be truly dazzled. Brilliantina™ abelia is filled with little touches of beauty. Its foliage is a vibrant, watercolor-like blend of green and yellow, with orange new growth. Deep red stems and pretty little white flowers in the spring add complexity to the show.

You’ll have plenty of time to notice all of these little elements due to a very easy care nature. You won’t have to be out pruning, as it was developed specifically to maintain a tidy habit without any of the random long shoots – also known as “dog legs” –  you might be familiar with from other abelias.
