Nigra Dark Green Arborvitae


Nigra Dark Green Arborvitae is one of the best varieties for cold climates. When many other arborvitae look yellow-brown in winter, Nigra Dark Green Arborvitae retains its deep, dark green color all winter. Easy to prune. Useful as a specimen, accent, hedge and commonly found in foundation plantings. Prefers deep, well-drained soil and full sun.
