Hi,

I was considering planting a row of emerald green arborvitaes along a fence that gets direct sunlight about 4-5 hours/day- from about 3-3:30 pm to sunset (measured in April and may extend longer in the summer). I was hoping someone might be able to suggest whether that will be enough for them to be healthy in the long-term or if we should seek out alternative plants.

Thanks!

They do best in my opinion. 6 hours or so. At best yours would get three hours because that late afternoon sun isn't that strong.
