Tall Guy® Arborvitae

Thuja occidentalis 'RutThu5' PPAF

Tall Guy is a moderate to fast growing, upright, columnar arborvitae. Tall Guy matures quickly and has no gaps in the habit from multiple leaders like other multi-stem varieties. This evergreen thrives in warm climates, does equally well in cold climates, and is resistant to Passalora/Cercospora needle blight. Use Tall Guy to create hedges or screens, or to anchor the landscape with some vertical appeal year-round.
