Thuja western takes first place in the list of the most demanded decorative conifers. Today, varieties with different crown shapes and needles color are used for landscaping. Some plants retain their appearance throughout the year, while the color of the branches in others depends on the season..

Description of Tui Hoseri

saplings of thuja Hozeri The thuja western Hoseri or Thuja occidentalis Hoseri, bred by Polish breeders, belongs to dwarf varieties with a small annual growth and a dense spherical crown. The shrub owes its shape and decorativeness to several willingly branching trunks covered with green scaly needles..

The dark green crown in summer turns into red-brown, bronze tones by autumn. But this does not mean that in winter the shrub will lose its attractiveness. The needles do not fall off, and the thuja is only going through a period of dormancy. In the spring, the green tint returns again. The needles, like shoots, tolerate winter well, and die off and fall off only three years after the appearance.

The frost-resistant plant does well in the middle lane. According to the description, thuya Hoseri:

  • only in the first years of life does it need additional shelter;
  • tolerates pruning without problems;
  • thanks to its large compact crown, it is not afraid of strong winds.

Thuja is durable and can decorate the site for several decades. By the age of 10, the diameter and height of the shrub reaches 60–80 cm.

slow growing thuja hozeriIn the future, growth slows down even more. Since the annual growth is very small, the crown perfectly retains its natural outlines, and the owner of the site saves time on cutting thuja Hoseri.

However, thinking about planting this variety, you need to remember that thuja needs loose, moderately fertile soil and regular watering.

If the soil under the bush dries up, both the underground part and the crown of the thuja suffer from a lack of moisture. The plant loses its tone, the needles begin to turn yellow, young shoots can fade.

However, for an ephedra of this variety, it is better to choose a well-lit area or partial shade. Here culture will show its best features:

  • density and roundness of the fluffy crown;
  • rich color of needles.

Planting thuja Hoseri and caring for the shrub

thuja hoseri as a pot cultureThuja is planted in early spring or autumn so that the shrub has time to take root before frost. In the northern regions, it is important not to be late with planting the plant, otherwise the root system will freeze out, and the thuja Hoseri will die.

Tui, like all coniferous crops, do not tolerate stagnant moisture and deep shade. Plants gradually lose their attractiveness in the shade..

If the site is in a flooded area, artificial hills are made for planting, drainage channels are laid, a layer of sand, expanded clay, broken brick is poured at the bottom of the planting pits.

The plant has no special requirements for the composition and acidity of the soil. A pit 60 to 80 cm deep is made for a 3-4 year old seedling. The young thuja is placed in the hole so that the root collar is not covered with soil. The free space between the roots and the walls of the hole is filled with a substrate. It is better to prepare it in advance by mixing:

  • 2 pieces of garden land;
  • 1 part sand;
  • 1 part lowland peat.

Fresh organic matter that can burn the root system of the seedling is not poured under the thuja, but the complex mixture for conifers will help thuja to take root and overcome the acclimatization period faster.

Until young branches appear on the bush, water the thuja as soon as the surface of the trunk circle dries up.

In the future, watering is carried out weekly at the rate of 8-10 liters per bush. Water is especially important in drought conditions. To keep it in the soil, mulching is carried out. And the good condition of the crown is maintained with the help of sprinkling..

At the beginning of the growing season, fertilization helps the plant to wake up, recover and grow. In autumn, potassium salts and phosphates, together with abundant pre-winter watering, lay the foundation for a successful winter. Before the onset of cold weather, young shrubs are tied and covered with spruce branches, non-woven material. Cover the crown with snow.

In the spring, sanitary pruning is carried out, and the soil under the plant is carefully loosened, without deepening by more than 7-10 cm.
