Thuja – Fluffy® – Western Arborvitae – Thuja plicata
The foliage of Western arborvitae has a very distinctive braided look. While deer may certainly browse it, Western arborvitae (Thuja plicata) is generally considered to be more deer resistant than its counterpart, Eastern arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis).
Native to North America
Plant Western arborvitae in moist but well-drained soil. If you wish to prune it, do so in spring, after the new growth has begun to flush out.
Thanks to its distinctive habit and colorful foliage, Fluffy makes a true statement in the landscape. Try it as a specimen, or pair them at a door or entrance for a dash of fun formality.
