At the trade show Gardenia 2020 in Poland, the expert jury has awarded Thuja Totem Smaragd ('Thuclavo'PBR) with a gold medal. A great achievement for this beautiful, compact conifer. Sebastiaan Hoogenraad of Handelskwekerij G. Hoogenraad B.V. had the honour to accept this prize as he was the one who signed Totem Smaragd up for the show. Thuja Totem Smaragd has a natural habit that forms a nice, oval shape: a “totem”. Branching is dense and Totem Smaragd becomes about 150 – 175 cm tall and 40-50 cm wide. Very suitable for many applications. Totem Smaragd is found by Casey van Vloten from Canada. In 2019, Totem Smaragd was already awarded with a silver medal at GrootGroenPlus. With two awards like this, it is a very successful introduction!
