Experts have been fooled by this tight growing evergreen thinking it is a slow growing Hinoki Cypress. Primo's rich, deep green summer color, textural foliage and sculpted shape make this new selection a breakthrough for Arborvitae. It boasts the perfect proportions for mini landscapes, border plantings or container gardening. Plant it in groups as a low hedgerow to enjoy a little privacy in a sunny corner of the property. It is easy to grow and requires little to no maintenance. Thuja occidentalis 'Islprim'
