Description

Thujopsis genus (Broad-leaved arborvitae). This genus has a single species of conifer, which produces round woody fruits called cones with winged seeds and large needle-like leaves.

Characteristics

Evergreens, Conifers or Trees

Other common names

False arborvitae

Cultivation

They are tolerant of the cold and will thrive in moist, well-drained, acidic or alkaline soil with an open, sunny position. If the conifer produces more than one leader, to maintain the general conical habit remove all but one leader. To restrict the height of the plant, the leader can be cut back.

Propagation

You can propagate from seed sown in autumn or spring (but forms selected for leaf colour do not come true). Evergreen current growth cuttings in autumn to spring. Deciduous softwood cuttings in summer.

Pests, diseases or disorders

Honey fungus may be a problem; young plants are more susceptible.
