Holmstrup Arborvitae

‘Holmstrup’ is a compact cultivar discovered in Holmstrup, Denmark and introduced into commerce in 1951. It is a slow-growing cultivar that grows to 5-8’ tall over the first 10 years, eventually maturing to as much as 10-15’ over time. Plants display a dense narrow-pyramidal shape with attractive rich green scale-like foliage in vertical sprays. Foliage is noted for retaining good green color throughout winter. Seed cones are not particularly showy.
