If you are looking to add a tall-growing and narrow, evergreen shrub to your landscape that is hardy and fills a variety of needs, then look no further than Polar Gold® Arborvitae. Although its official cultivar name is ‘SMTOYB’, you are more likely to locate it under its tradename of Polar Gold®. With its cheery golden foliage, it certainly lives up to its name and is sure to add a blast of color to any landscape. This conifer with a pyramidal form grows to around 15 feet tall at maturity and with a mature width of around 4 to 6 feet.

  • Thrives in the coldest climates
  • Evergreen with year-round color of yellow foliage tips
  • Space-saving narrow width
  • Suitable as a hedge, screen or container plant
  • Low-maintenance and easy to grow

Polar Gold® Arborvitae has a compact and upright habit, forming into a dense pyramid shape and growing to maturity at a moderate rate of speed. The fragrant and finely textured foliage takes on a bright golden coloration, as new growth emerges, changing to green the following year. When other trees and shrubs have dropped their foliage in winter, Polar Gold® Arborvitae continues to bring color to an otherwise dull and dreary landscape. This long-lived, native conifer shrub is the perfect selection for those who desire eye-catching greenery that does not require a large amount of space to grow properly.
