Arborvitae, Emerald Green
Description: Emerald Green Arborvitaes are probably one of the most popular forms of "green screens" (also called privacy hedges) available to homeowners. These lush, thick bushes stand upright with a naturally rounded shape and maintain their dark green foliage year round. Emerald green arborvitaes are low maintenance plants. The Emerald Green Arborvitae displays its bright lustrous emerald green color all year, and does not discolor in winter. Its very compact and tight grow make it an excellent choice for a screen when spaced 2 to 3 feet apart in the row. 'Emerald Green' arborvitae does great in full sun, but can grow in light shade as well.
