Sting™ Arborvitae

Where drama and utility meet. Sting™ arborvitae is a thrilling statement plant, it literally looks like an exclamation point in the landscape, and it takes up less than 2 square feet of space. You get all the interest a 20 foot tall plant has to offer and you’ll still have space for close companion planting. This narrow evergreen defines spaces as a foundation plant, space-saving hedge, and of course as a specimen.

Why grow Sting™ arborvitae?

  • Tiny footprint, easy to pop into the garden
  • Totally unique way to bring structure to a space
  • Evergreen for year-round interest
