Zmatlik Dwarf Arborvitae - Thuja occidentalis 'Zmatlik'

Regular price $16.99

Zmatlik Arborvitae is a great anchor tree for the miniature garden bed. With its ruggedness and finely textured dark green foliage, it really looks like a big forest tree - but in miniature. It really is a pleasure to grow in a container (at least 12" deep) or right in the garden bed.
