    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

    GROUND HUG® Aronia

    You’re looking at a real problem-solving shrub. Ground Hug® aronia quickly covers problematic areas, thriving even in very difficult conditions and looking great while doing it. Spring brings clusters of white flowers that attract all sorts of pollinators, and these become black-purple berries by late summer. Come autumn, it lights up in tones of red, orange, and yellow for an unforgettable season finale, before taking a rest and doing it all again the following spring. Aronia is a North American native that can grow in just about any spot, including the worst: pH extremes are no problem, nor are excessive moisture or dryness. It can grow in sun or shade, though in shade, flowering will be diminished, and fall color not as vivid.
