Whipcord Arborvitae

This one make look a bit like Cousin It... but nope, it's actually Whipcord Arborvitae! A unique evergreen shrub that is a must-have with a most unusual shape and texture. We love its long, thick glossy tendrils and a distinctive cord-like texture. Gracefully arching downward, the cascading branches provide an interesting shape for the landscape. In the winter it will have a warm bronze hue. It is slow growing in a multi-branch globe shaped mound. Plant in full sun for top performance.

Try planting alone as a specimen plant, add to your landscape planted near perennials or annuals, or even plant in a container for your porch or patio. This beauty is also deer resistant.
