It thrives in a wide variety of soils and can tolerate more shade than most coniferous evergreens. It performs well in dry, windy sites. Russian arborvitae is often used in rock gardens and as edging along paths and borders. Russian arborvitae is a lacy, fine textured groundcover, light green in summer and purplish brown in winter.
