'Steeplechase' is a sport of and great improvement over A. 'Green Giant'. Steeplechase has a far more dense, full habit, with foliage
far more feathery and finely cut, and a tip that emerges fully leafed out instead of shooting up a bare stem to fill in over time. It also is
more narrow. Steeplechase is fast growing and exceptionally tolerant to heat, humidity, drought, cold, and heavy ice and snow.It even
resists bagworms. Its neat, maintenance-free pyramidal shape never needs trimming, and its billowy, feathery look and lean habit
make Steeplechase the perfect evergreen tree for a screen planting.
An uncommon garden evergreen with showy, dark glossy green foliage on upswept branches; ideal as an accent,
hedge or screen, takes pruning well; protect from drying winter winds
Steeplechase Arborvitae has attractive dark green foliage. The glossy scale-like leaves are highly ornamental and
remain dark green throughout the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.
Steeplechase Arborvitae is a dense multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a distinctive and refined pyramidal form. Its
relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.
This is a relatively low maintenance shrub. When pruning is necessary, it is recommended to only trim back the new
growth of the current season, other than to remove any dieback. It has no significant negative characteristics.
Steeplechase Arborvitae will grow to be about 18 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 8 feet. It has a low canopy,
and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected
to live for approximately 30 years.
This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out.
It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively
sheltered location. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder
microclimates. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
