Comments: Grown for foliage which is lemon yellow in spring, turning orange-yellow in winter. This is a lowing growing arborvitae. It will get 8 or more feet in height, but that will take many years for it to do so. It should be protected from strong, drying winds; particularly in winter. It is an interesting specimen plant.
