Primo Dwarf Arborvitae - Thuja occidentalis 'Primo'

The new Primo Arborvitae is new to our inventory this season. The plant is absolutely darling but the information on it is limited thus far. I'm treating as a slower version of the Zmatlik. It's daintier in shape, it grows into a slimmer cone shape. The bark already looks aged (see photo) and that great reddy-brown color contrasts nicely with the rich, emerald green color. 

The Primo is a great anchor tree for the miniature garden bed. With its ruggedness and finely textured dark green foliage, it really looks like a big forest tree - but in miniature. I imagine is it just as pleasurable to grow as the Zmatlik. Ideal for containers (at least 10" deep) or right in the garden bed.

  • Upright narrow in shape
  • Note that the winter color might a deep golden amber
  • Hardy to -40F or Zones 2 - 7
  • Heat zones 7 - 1
  • Estimated growth rate is 2" to 5" per year
  • Full sun to part sun
  • Regular water with well drained soil
  • If in a pot, let dry out to barely damp in between to avoid over watering
  • If in a pot, shelter from extreme hot sun in late afternoon in the summer
  • An outdoor plant

Compact Fernspray Cypress – Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Filicoides Compacta’

This lovely hinoki grows more like a fern than a wee tree. A stunning gem for the miniature garden, the branches grow out from the base of the tree rather than along the trunk – thus the “Fernspray” name. You can prune it to keep its compact shape or just let it do what it does naturally. An unusual hinoki for the miniature garden that can stand alone as a focal point. A treat to grow.

  • Growth: 6” – 12" per year – we’ve experienced it as being slower-growing in our miniature gardens.

  • Hardiness: Cold hardy Zones 5-8 or to -20F
  • Heat Hardy: Heat Zones 8-1
  • Light: Full sun to part shade

  • Prune judiciously in mid to late winter to keep it compact
  • Tips may turn bronze or amber in the colder areas in winter, it's 'winter blush'
  • Comes in a 4" pot
