The Amber Gold Arborvitae is a beautiful upright cold-hardy evergreen with brilliant golden foliage and dense growth, even when young. The bright yellow new branches slowly darken over summer, and pass through winter a beautiful amber orange. It doesn’t burn in winter or summer, as so many golden conifers do, and its dense growth means clipping isn’t even needed. Reaching 15 feet in about 10 years, and only 3 feet wide, it will continue to grow steadily taller, but never become a monster. Grow it as a striking specimen among shrubs or other evergreens, or plant it in a pot for your terrace or patio. It is perfect beside the door, alone or in groups on the lawn, or as a brilliant hedge.

  • Bright golden spring foliage
  • Amber-orange winter colors
  • moderate growth rates
  • Doesn’t burn in winter or summer
  • Grows well in cold zones

Full sun is perfect for the Amber Gold Arborvitae, and it won’t scorch. It will also grow with a little partial shade, but too much will turn it greener. It grows even in zone 4, and in any soil, even damp places. Once established it is moderately drought tolerant, and it grows in both acid and alkaline soils. Pests or diseases are very rare, but deer will eat it in winter if they can. You don’t need to trim for neatness or to control its size, but if you do, between late spring and early fall is best.
