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.

Plant was quite yellowed but service and care in shipping were excellent

My overall experience with Fast Growing Trees so far is above standard. In today's society, very few companies take their roles in servicing customers seriously but Fast Growing Trees does so with passion. They put so much care into shipping their trees to ensure they arrive in good shape. Their customer service is exceptional, making sure the customer is satisfied and the normal quality of trees, shrubs, and other plants is good. For this particular purchase, I ordered on Hetz Midget Thuja and it arrived quite yellowed. I've planted it in hopes I can nurse it back to life but only time will tell. I look forward to purchasing many more trees and shrubs from FTG as my landscape designs come to fruition. I expect I'll receive the same quality of plants and services when the time comes.

Fast Growing Trees Plant ExpertThank you for taking the time to review your experience! Yellowing is a pretty common sign of stress from the shipping and they should perk back up in the upcoming couple of weeks. Reach out if you have additional concerns and we'll make it right!
