Thuja orientalis 'Aurea Nana'

Golden Ball Arborvitae, Berchman's Golden

Tough foundation plants, windbreaks, headges and screens, these cone-bearing evergreens thrive in wet soil and full sun. Use the dwarf types in rock gardens. Their flat needle-like leaves are fragrant. Protect from winter sun and cold winter winds in northern climates. Prone to snow and ice damage. Prune to control size and shape and to remove damaged or diseased branches. Do not prune beyond green growth, as you may leave a permanent hole in the foliage. Watch for spider mites in dry climates.
