This American arborvitae cultivar is a semi-dwarf, evergreen shrub with a compact, narrowly pyramidal habit. Glossy bright green, scale-like foliage in flat sprays.  Grown as a 8' - 15' (infrequently to 20') tall snappy-looking evergreen with a spread of 3-4'. This cultivar is synonymous with and sometimes also called 'Smaragd'.

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. The foliage density becomes looser in heavy shade and it tolerates a wide range of soils. Enjoys humid weather with regular rains. In hot and dry weather, periodic, deep waterings are advisable. A good root zone mulch helps to preserve water. If desired, prune and shape (usually unnecessary) in early spring before onset of new growth.

This is one of the better arborvitae cultivars for smaller or confined spaces, or for an elegant buffer.
