Unique Ever-Yellow Arborvitae!

When people call us asking for advice on their landscaping, one of the most often asked questions is "What will look good in my garden all year?" Typically, people are asking about evergreens and the like - shrubs that don't lose their leaves in the winter.

On the short list of favorite evergreens used in American gardens, Arborvitae is probably close to #1.Some version of these super-hardy needle evergreens grow in almost every state and are true "plant-it-and-forget-it" foundation plants. You see them everywhere. Some people see this as a sign of overuse and unimaginative. We see it as a sign of a fantastic plant that does its job really well!

So, what if you want an evergreen, just not one that is...well...green? Have we got the plant for you!

Sunkist Arborvitae, Thuja occidentalis 'Sunkist', has all of the traits of the classic Arborvitae - dense, aromatic, needle-like leaves on a pyramidal shrub that never needs pruning. They make great screens, hedges or fences. All of this in a great plant that has beautiful yellow leaves year round. They are extra lemony-yellow in the spring and a more orangy-yellow in the fall, with a mellow-yellow green the rest of the year.

Sunkist will light up next to dark-green evergreens and make perennial flowers pop against its pretty color. Don't spend another minute wondering. Order yours today and see how beautiful Sunkist is yourself!

  • Ever-yellow
  • Natural Pyramid Shape
  • No Pruning Needed
