Thuja plicata Golden Spire
Thuja plicata ( Western Red Cedar ) introduction that has beautiful golden yellow color with rich orange overtones. Golden color holds very well through the winter with little, if any, color change at all - making it a real standout in just about any area. Has a wide variety of uses, from a medium sized specimen planting, to hedge plantings, bright accents, even container gardening.
Has a nice, tight conical growth as it matures.....becoming more & more columnar in habit with age. Makes a nice screen / border if you are after something with lots of color year round. Has shown itself to be very deer resistant as well, which is a very attractive quality of this Arborvitae selection - few problems have been observed.
