Forever Goldy Arborvitae (Thuja plicata ‘4EVER’)
Forever Goldy Arborvitae
Look out, because evergreen just got a makeover! Yes, the classic dark forest green of pine trees is lovely but if you’re looking for a bright pop of color that lasts all year long, then Forever Goldy® Arborvitae (Thuja plicata ‘4EVER’ PP #19267) is exactly what you need! Not convinced? Well, do we have a list of attributes for you!
Imagine this, a landscape blanketed with beautiful white snow, speckled with dark green pines and spruce. A beautiful sight for sure but what if there were splashes of gold among them, in the middle of winter! That’s exactly what Forever Goldy® Arborvitae offers with its mesmerizing golden-green needles. Never again will you have a strictly two-toned garden during the colder months.
Forever Goldy® Arborvitae has a pleasing pyramidal shape that looks quite a bit like a Christmas tree draped in gold.
This specimen is hardy up to -20° Fahrenheit so there is little it cannot handle each winter. As if that wasn’t enough, it has a fantastic drought tolerance and does just as well in the heat! Forever Goldy® Arborvitae is one of the best “plant it and forget about it” trees out there!
The bright yellow-green foliage creates a stunning accent to the various other bright flower colors in your garden during the spring and summer months as well as the other various greens of cold-loving evergreens in the winter.
As a slower-growing narrow tree, Forever Goldy® Arborvitae makes a handsome hedge for the edge of your yards or as a beautiful backdrop to your perennial gardens. Plus, since it’s a smaller tree, it’ll work perfectly in small gardens and landscapes!
The best place to plant a Forever Goldy® Arborvitae is somewhere it can have lots of sun with some afternoon shade. As far as soil goes, this golden delight isn’t picky at all, simply make sure it is well-drained and you won’t have to worry one bit!
Gold is the new green as far as gardens go! No more must we stick to the same old evergreen colors if we want winter interest. Forever Goldy® Arborvitae is here to accent the dark green with golden yellow-green to create a breathtaking landscape no matter the season.
