Thuja plicata 4 Ever Goldy ® USPP#19,267 EU#2004/0365

Talk about eye-catching! It takes just a glimpse to become smitten with this vibrant chartreuse, pyramid-shaped bushy conifer that offers year-round interest.  It hardly sheds any foliage the way other thujas do and there is little risk of sunburn – another redeeming quality!  Compact, hardy, steadfast in colour, Goldy has what it takes to make either a great stand-alone specimen or a formal hedge that will make the neighbours envious.

“Goldy” is a huge improvement over previous offerings. Thuja plicata is native to many forests on the west coast of North America. Over the years, a number of selections, such as Atrovirens and Excelsea, have been introduced, as have several mottled golden selections.
