Full Sun, Partial Sun

The Golden Tuffet Arborvitae is a unique and colorful dome-shaped dwarf evergreen with golden-yellow spring foliage, turning orange in summer and then purple-red with the intense winter cold. The foliage has a braided, thread-like look that is very different from most other arborvitae. This beacon of brightness shines out across your garden, but only grows 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide after ten years. It is the perfect choice for smaller gardens, the front of beds, along a path, or in planters and pots. It is very winter-hardy, down to at least zone 4, and it grows well everywhere except in places with very hot and humid summers.

  • Golden leaves turn orange and then purplish-red
  • Naturally dome-shaped accent plant
  • Unique ‘braided’ thread-like foliage
  • Easily grown even in cold zones
  • Colorful all-year feature for beds or planters

The Golden Tuffet Arborvitae grows best and brightest in full sun, but it also grows happily in some light partial shade. It is easy to grow in almost any garden soil, except for very dry and sandy ones, and in permanently flooded ground. It has no significant pests or diseases, and it maintains its neat form indefinitely, without trimming, although it can be trimmed in early spring for a very neat and more formal look. For an easy and bright splash of gold and orange in your garden, this is a top choice.
