    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.

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
