Planet Earth Arborvitae with green foliage

Discover More Information On Planet Earth™ Arborvitae

Plant Earth™ Arborvitae has a perfectly rounded, dense habit without any shearing. It is similar in size to 'Little Giant' but has better foliage density. The green foliage takes on bronze tones in colder climates. Planet Earth™ thrives in warm climates, does equally well in cold climates, and is resistant to Passalora/Cercospora needle blight. This evergreen was bred by Dr. John Ruter at the University of Georgia.
