It generally thrives in moist environments and regions with cooler summer climates but does well to tolerate dry spells as long it's plenty of water every week or two from early spring until fall frost hits. The bright green color can be seen all across this fine natural material, making it an excellent privacy screen for your yard!
Thuja Plicata ‘Virescens’ is a dense but not overly constricted tree that has the ability to grow in various environments.

Its native range spans from southern Alaska all way down past California into Oregon where it thrives best if placed near wet soil conditions which provide ample drainage while still being fertile enough without having too much clay-type material mixed into them.
