Need a Thuja ID confirmation.

mikebotann(8a SE of Seattle)January 22, 2014

A long time ago I purchased this Thuja from a nursery that called it a Thompson Cedar. It looks like it might be a Green Giant to me. Maybe a Hogan? Notice the lower branches are a bit different from the ones above.
I propagated a number of these and have found out it can't handle deep shade very well.
That's a Thuja plicata on the upper right for comparison.
Any help would be appreciated.
Mike

Mike, it doesn't look GG'ish to me. Foliage arrangment is too horizontal, for lack of a better description. Beyond that, I have no idea.

No, it's not a 'Gelderland''because that's a Dutch selection which came into the trade in the late eighties.
The foliage of the 'Gelderland' is more curly then this one at Mike's pic.

Unfortunately I can't help you this time Mike.
Maybe it's a local one found by a Mr. Thonpson which didn't make it furthur in the trade...

Hi Mike,

Possibly:
Thujopsis dolobrata var. hondai

I think what Mike is showing is a Thuja plicata cultivar
