American Arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis 'DeGroot's Spire')


Degroot's Spire (not DeGroots Spire) is correct.
From page 382 of The World Checklist of Conifers (Welch and Haddow).

@Leftwood, I think you might enjoy this resource:
ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CONIFERS It's a bit out of date as far as species but a nice resource nonetheless.
