Arborvitae Green Giant
I am considering purchasing some Arborvitae - for the specific purpose of screening. I am considering the fast growing Green Giant. My question is whether they will survive in my Zone 4A. Most sites I have found them on say Zone 5-7. I haven't noticed these trees in our surrounding area but I only just started looking. Does anyone have any experience growing this specific arborvitae in less than a Zone 5?
There is a Garden Center 45 mins south of us that has been in business as long as I can remember. The city that this business is located in is a Zone 5A. We have purchased a maple from this business before and there is a one year guarantee. When I called the owner to see if he had any of the Green Giants I expressed my concern that we are in a Zone 4. He said that they would be okay. I can't imagine as many years as he has been in business he would give me a line to get me to buy them knowing they wouldn't make it.....but maybe I am too trusting.
