Planting & Care for Anna's Magic Ball® Arborvitae

Preparation
  • The Anna's Magic Ball® Arborvitae prefers well-drained soil conditions and full sun to part shade.
  • It is ideal for borders, containers or anywhere space is limited.
  • Low maintenance dwarf evergreen
  • Sunny yellow foliage
  • Does not handle drought well.
Opening Plant Material
  • B&B - Soak root ball very well. Dig a hole at least 6"" wider and no deeper than the size of the ball on the plant. Rotate the plant to the proper position. Never lift or move trees by the tops.
Pruning - After Planting
  • B&B - Although it is not essential for B&B to be pruned after planting, a light pruning for shape, to remove any broken branches from shipping, or to thin out a heavily branched plant will help in the transplanting process and in the appearance of your new planting.
Pruning - Through-out the Season
  • These arborvitaes require little pruning or maintenance.
Watering - After Planting
  • Plants typically take approximately 6 weeks to establish new roots in your soil. During this period, water plants as often as every 2-4 days at the start and at least a minimum of once per week.
  • Beyond the 6 week establishment period, water once per week, unless rains occur.
  • Stick your finger into the soil around 3” to check soil moisture.
Watering - Through-out the Season
  • After the first season, plants should only be watered during extended periods without rain.
  • How do you know if your plants need water? The easiest way to tell is to touch the soil around the roots. If it is moist, there is no need to water. If it is dry, give it a good soaking with the hose end (no nozzle) watering the soil only, not the leaves.
  • Stick your finger into the soil around 3” to check soil moisture.
