American Arborvitae Tree Seeds (Thuja occidentalis)

Price for Package of 50 seeds.

Evergreen, Bonsai, Hedge Plant, Screen/Windbreak, Cold Tolerant...

Thuja occidentalis, commonly known as American arborvitae or white cedar, is a dense, conical to narrow-pyramidal (sometimes maturing to broad-pyramidal), often single-trunked, evergreen tree. It is often used for hedges, screens, and foundation plants. It needs full sun, likes high humidity but can be grown in virtually any soil. It doesn't mind pruning or high pH. This is a slow-growing tree that reaches 25-40' in height and spreads to about 10-12' wide. It is often found in the wild in low areas, wet forests and swamps and less frequently in some dryish sites. Mature trees may reach 40-60’ tall in the wild over time, but in cultivation typically grow much smaller to 20-30’ tall.

Scale-like, aromatic, yellow-green to dark green foliage appears in flattened sprays. Erect seed cones (1/2” long) are not particularly showy. Red-brown bark will exfoliate on mature branches and trunks. The common name of arborvitae (tree of life) comes from early French settlers to North America who learned from Native Americans that the tree’s foliage could be used to treat scurvy.
