    Will this plant survive in our very cold Chicago weather

    Dec 21, 2020, 09:13 AM

    Fluffy is categorized as a zone 5 plant, so yes, Chicago area would be fine.

Adaptable in terms of pH; best growth is in moderately moist, cool, fertile soils.

Does not strictly require pruning, though it does tolerate it well. Prune in spring before new growth begins.

Western arborvitae shows considerable resistance to deer browsing. Foliage has a bold, braided look.
