Eastern White Cedar (Arborvitae)
Boston Ivy

Eastern White Cedar is a slender growing conifer often used as a decorative tree or a hedge. This tree is an effective privacy screen even in winter and a great long term solution to urban crowding or a drab yard.

Boston Ivy is an elegant, climbing vine that is often seen as a decorative addition to the sides of buildings. Unlike other climbing vines, this vine does not need a support to grow on. Instead, it clings to surfaces with holdfasts located at the tendril ends.

Boston Ivy is excellent for covering walls, trellises, arbors or fences, but can also be grown on the ground. Don't plant this vine against wood walls, shingle walls, gutters, or shutters as the holdfasts can cause damage over time. This variety will grow as tall and wide as the structure it is grown upon, so make sure you plan your site accordingly.
