Thuja Sugar & Spice stands out because of its beautiful looks. Its leaves have a fine, soft texture with a full, dark green color. This matches well with its brown-orange stems. This conifer has a slender, upright habit. It reaches a height of 10' a width of 30". But don’t judge a book by its cover! Sugar & Spice may have refined looks, but it’s actually a powerful, solid plant with a very strong root system. Sugar & Spice is evergreen, so you can enjoy Sugar & Spice all year round. It’s disease-tolerant and can stand cold temperatures to USDA Zone 6b. Another characteristic is its vigorous and easy growth. Sugar & Spice is not picky about the type of soil and its location in your garden. You can easily plant it in full sun, partial shade or shade. Even in shade, it retains its dark color! Sugar & Spice is very suitable as a solitary plant. You can also use it for landscaping, as hedge, in perennial borders and combined with other plants in a container.
