Techny Arborvitae


All-star evergreen is handsome, hardy and versatile. Techny has very dark green foliage that stays green and resists burning over the winter. Slow growing, large and broadly conical plant may be lightly sheared to create a tighter, more formal look. Sturdy branches handle snow loads well. Not fussy, but best in full sun and evenly moist soil. Makes a great low-maintenance hedge or stand-alone accent where space allows. Also known as Mission Arborvitae for its birthplace at a Mission Gardens in Techny, IL, near Northbrook.
