Maintenance Notes

Arborvitae likes well-drained but moist soil, and benefits from a 2-3" layer of mulch. It needs little to no pruning, but if you wish to prune, do so in spring, after the new growth has begun to flush out. Avoid cutting into any thick or old stems.

Uses Notes

With its neat, rounded habit and evergreen foliage, Tater Tot arborvitae can fill just about any landscape role. It's perfect for adding a touch of formality to landscapes that could benefit from a bit of structure.
