DeGroot Arborvitae - Yes or No????

ncgardner(7B)October 25, 2008

Do any of you have any positives or negatives concerning the shrub DeGroot Arborvitae? There were 5 planted at the NC Fair and I liked the softness of the needles. They look very much like the False Cypress but I finally realized they were Arborvitae. Tall and narrow. They seem to grow wider than a Sky Pencil Holly.

I'm thinking of using 5 as a division between my yard and a neighbors. Not used as a true hedge but just to break the view a little. I don't know how they do in this area. Are our summers too hot? Any help will be appreciated.

They do fine in this area and are useful for containers or small spaces, but the deer may graze on them. I don't know if that's important where you live. The deer don't radar in on them like they do daylilies or hostas, but will take an opportunistic munch now and then.
