Degroot's Spire is a smaller plant and so technically will require less water than the other arborvitaes.

Grown in the ground, Degroot's Spire will appreciate a deep soaking once each week during the hottest months of the year; grown in a container, it will need more frequent applications of water.

Hope this answers your question!
