Thuja plicata 'Atrovirens' are extremely similar to the 'Virescens' variety. A sister plant to the Green Giant Arborvitae, Atrovirens Arborvitae grows very quickly, is not disturbed by deer and makes a very dense privacy hedge. The main difference, however, is that the Atrovirens Arborvitae stays much more narrow. The Atrovirens is similar to an Emerald Green but grows at a faster rate and is deer-resistant! If you have a smaller yard or smaller garden space where you need a fast-growing privacy plant, Thuja 'Atrovirens' may be the perfect fit for you.

Atrovirens and Virescens are commonly used in Europe as an evergreen privacy hedge.
