Answer: Brandon Thuja occidentalis 'Brandon' has an upright form; 12-15' tall x 6-8' wide; green foliage; narrow upright with finely textured foliage; and resistant to winter burn. It's hardy to zone 3. As long as the plants have an opportunity to establish their root systems before the first hard freeze, they should be fine in Chicago. Plant them in early spring in well-draining soil and be sure to water deeply once each week. By winter they should be well established and ready to endure your winter weather.
