Thuja plicata 'Atrovirens' is one of the best conifers for hedging and screening, with dense, rich green foliage, pleasantly pineapple-scented when crushed. Ideal for a hedge from 1.75m to 3m, growing approximately 60cm per year. A more manageable alternative to Leyland cypress, less susceptible to disease. Also, unlike Leylandii, it will recover when cut back into old wood. Grown as a specimen tree, it makes a handsome large conical tree with a mature height and spread of 20m or more by 6m.

For a hedge, plant 45cm apart in well-prepared, well-drained fertile soil, in sun. Keep well watered and feed in spring with a balanced fertiliser in the first 2 to 3 years. Trim once a year in June or July.
