Thuja "Green Giant" (Thuja standishii x plicata "Green Giant") has only been in the world some 40 years yet it already has a good reputation for
towering size and easy maintenance. A hybrid cross between Japanese arborvitae (Thuja standishii) and Western red cedar (Thuja plicata), "Green
Giant" may have some of the longevity genes of its cedar parent that lives to 1,200 years old; but alas, the cultivar is too new to the planet to be
No tree is ever completely maintenance free, but "Green Giant" is very close. The tree requires daily sun to thrive, it accepts most soil
conditions in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 5 though 9, and grows vigorously, up to 48 inches per year. Neither insect
pests nor diseases cause serious trouble to "Green Giant," and it does not require pruning to maintain its conical or pyramid shape. Gardeners
using the plant in a hedge can clip the arborvitae to fit their needs.
Although the tree is undemanding and tolerant, treating it like a garden star can only extend its lifespan. Grow your tree in a sunny site that
receives a little shade in the heat of summer afternoons. Provide water weekly during the year after transplant, and again during the heat of the
growing season. Don't take its soil tolerance as not having a preference: "Green Giant" grows best in fertile, moist, well-drained soil, like its
parent Japanese arborvitae that thrives in USDA zones 5 though 9. You aid the tree by working compost into the soil before planting. It also
helps to mulch with organic material.
