Arborvitae 'Whipcord'

Out-of-stock

Description

'Whipcord' is a shrubby, slow-growing, dwarf form that features pendulous whipcord-like green foliage which droops from branchlets rising upward from the center before arching downward. This small shrub typically grows as a flattened mound when young (to 2' tall and to 3' wide over the first 10 years), but eventually forms over time a more rounded shrub to 4-5' tall and as wide. Glossy green foliage usually acquires bronze tones in winter.
