Arborvitae, Yellow Ribbon


Colorful evergreen foliage and a neat pyramidal habit make this arborvitae a useful color accent in the garden or foundation planting. New foliage emerges orange in the spring, gradually turning green over the summer. The foliage then turns an outstanding harvest gold color in the fall. This is a relatively low maintenance shrub. If any pruning is needed, lightly trim back the new growth of the current season making sure you don't cut into bare stems. Plant in areas sheltered from drying winter winds. May need protection from deer.

  • Mature Height: 10-15 feet

Plants are constantly growing, ever-changing, and therefore unique. The plant you receive may vary from the photo, but rest assured, holds the same glorious potential!
