I planted 4 of these trees, 3 of which were only about 3 – 4′ tall. One was taller and much more open, and I’m concerned that one was mislabelled and is actually the species thuja plicata. Time will tell! Either way these are shooting up quickly after only one year in the ground, so I’m hoping they start to provide a nice screen in 1 to 2 years time.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
