Emerald Green has rich and dense foliage with a classic narrow, somewhat pyramidal form which makes it attractive in all seasons. Unlike other thujas, this cultivar keeps its lustrous green color even in the cold winter months.
The slow-growing Emerald Green is great for specimen or accent planting, hedges, privacy screens and shelterbelts. Most Noteworthy: Emerald Green makes a wonderful foundation plant and privacy screen.
The Variety Green Giant is a large and vigorous, and also fast-growing evergreen that can shoot up by as much as 3′ per year until finally reaching maturity. Its natural pyramidal to conical form has dense, green foliage that darkens which results in bronze shades in the winter.
This is an exceptional landscape tree for use as a screen, hedge or single specimen. It’s wind-resistant once established. It can withstand heavy ice or snow, making it a great choice for a natural windbreak.

Green Giant can remain in their pots till you are ready to plant. Keep them in a well lit or sunny area (not in full sun) with good air circulation and spacing. Water accordingly. Give the plants the time to use up most of the moisture between watering.
Spring and summer does increase your chances of losing your plants. Two most common reasons are that the plant dries out and also may have been over-watered for a period of time without being noticed. Depending on your spring and summer temperatures you may need to consider the following:
- First add additional protection to the root system such as mulches like nuggets or pine straw
- Then increase/decrease the amount of moisture they receive (and do not allow them to be over watered)
- Always check to make sure that the plugs’ root system has not dropped below ground level
- Finally check several plugs in different areas and please make sure that all are getting even moisture.
