White Cedar

One of the very smallest conifers on offer this little gem forms a neat globe of soft lacy foliage.

Very slow growing, Thuja 'Hetz Midjet' is a dwarf conifer, making it suitable for small spaces and containers. As well as its size, the other notable feature of this conifer is the foliage which is grown on upright branches to create an overall globe shape with the leaves appearing in flat, fan shaped clusters. Its unique appearance means this is a fascinating miniature to grow, looking great in rock gardens, gravel gardens, at the front of a mixed border or in a pot. The evergreen foliage is a lovely blue-green in colour that takes on a bronze tinge in winter, adding extra seasonality to year round interest. With a pleasant fruity aroma to the foliage when crushed, this impressive dwarf cultivar of Thuja (which is an important timber tree) is one not to be missed.

The fascinating colour tones of this small yet versatile North American conifer means it deserves a spot in any garden.

Plant Care & Advice

Thuja 'Hetz Midget' is best grown in deep, moist but well drained soil in full sun. Grow in South, East or West aspects to maximise the sun and shelter from cold, drying winter winds that can occasionally scorch young foliage.

Ideal for small gardens at the front of borders, for rockeries or for pots and containers this dwarf conifer will need to be watered well in its first season and when grown in a pot but in the ground in subsequent seasons it should have a degree of drought tolerance. Occasional feeding can be carried out in the first season (and when growing in pots) but wont be necessary in subsequent seasons in the ground.

There is no need to prune other than to remove any dead, diseased or awkwardly placed stems as they occur.
