Lemon Burst Aborvitae in the landscape

This moderately sized arborvitae has a broadly conical form and tight habit. The yellow new growth that stays yellow through summer when grown in full sun. While bred to withstand the heat of the south, it also incredibly hardy and does well in the north. The foliage takes on lovely orange tones in the North during winter. Resistant to needle blight. A great selection for year round color and stunning winter interest.
