Product Description

The Thuja with Global Appeal

Why Hetz Midget Thuja Shrubs?

The Hetz Midget Thuja Shrub is a well-rounded evergreen, particularly for its wonderful globe silhouette and convenient dwarf size. Plus, it's a hardy and adaptable shrub that's excellent for everything from containers to rock gardens and plant beds.

Unlike ordinary columnar or pyramidal evergreens, the Hetz's distinctive shape will singlehandedly transform the design of your garden or landscape. Not to mention its rich, green foliage that's thick and full but slow-growing to enable a variety of suitable planting options. Plus, because it's slow-growing, that means frequent pruning is a thing of the past - you get a neat, tidy shape without much work.

And since it's a hardy shrub, the Hetz stands up to frigid winter temperatures all while maintaining its trademark forest green color. All of this and more means big looks for a small shrub. Especially because the Hetz's compact and rounded growth habit makes care simple.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: These shrubs are full to partial sun lovers that require around 3 to 6 hours of sunlight daily. They also prefer moist soil, though they can tolerate dry conditions and different soil types.

When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that is twice as big around as your shipped container and just as deep. Remove your shrub from the container and gently comb the roots to loosen the roots. Place the shrub in the hole, ensuring that the root ball is level. Backfill the hole and cover the area with mulch to help protect the roots.

2. Watering: Water when the soil is dry about 2 inches down - the timing will vary depending on climate and conditions.

3. Fertilizing: Hetz Midget Thujas do not need regular fertilization. You can fertilize the first spring to give them a boost - an evergreen-specific fertilizer is ideal.

4. Pruning: You can prune to maintain size and shape, but regular pruning is not required.

I love it!!!

My 3rd order for our lawn care business and as expected, plants came in great condition. Great size for a 3 gallon Hetz for our landscaping project.

Fantastic

I ordered these and they came much faster than expected. They are adorable. I ordered the smallest size and they are extremely tiny. I am ok with that because I will enjoy watching them grow. An unheard of winter storm in Texas pretty much destroyed all of my landscaping. These were a site for sore eyes and I look forward to watching them grow. It says they are slow growing but I’ve got nothing but time. I was so impressed by the packaging. We thought out and so effective for shipping something so delicate. They arrived without any damage and were so green. Very impressed.

Hetz Midget Thuja Shrub

Bought 6 of "THE H.M.T.S". Delivery was great and timely. All 6 were in great shape. Planted them a month ago and are doing well. Will be coming back to FAST GROWING TREES next spring for new and refreshed stock items. Thank you again, F.G.Ts!

little bush that could

This is my 1st time using an on line nursery. When the bush was delivered, it was healthy,. I uncovered it immediately to let it get used to the area where I plan to plant it. I left it out in the rain, and then, with in a week it was planted. So far so good. It seems to be thriving.
