Thuja occidentalis 'Aurea' is a slow-growing evergreen conifer with a stunning golden-yellow foliage. It is commonly known as Golden Arborvitae and is a popular choice for gardeners looking to add color to their landscapes. This variety of Thuja is a cultivar of the native American Arborvitae, Thuja occidentalis.

The Golden Arborvitae has a narrow and upright habit, which makes it ideal for tight spaces or as a vertical accent in garden beds. It grows to a height of up to 15 feet and a width of up to 5 feet, making it a perfect choice for hedges or screens. The foliage is soft and feathery, with a fine texture, and its color is most intense in full sun.

The Golden Arborvitae is a low-maintenance plant that prefers well-drained soils and full sun exposure. It is drought tolerant once established and can withstand cold temperatures and wind. It requires occasional pruning to maintain its shape, and it responds well to shearing.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
