This conifer is known under its other name – thuja. This plant is from a cypress family, it grows compact and dense like its thuja relative Smaragd.

The scale-like leaves are fresh green maturing to yellow or golden-yellow, gaining red shades in winter. Its natural habit is more fastigiated and slim rather than pyramidal as its Latin name suggests.

It is a trouble-free conifer which, once established, needs no maintenance at all. It grows slowly and may be pruned or trimmed in spring and late summer. It is quite soil tolerant but dislikes boggy locations and long-standing water. Just keep the soil moist after planting. It does well on exposed sites and is suitable for hedges. Not recommended for mountainous resorts with long-lasting frosts and heavy snow falls. Hardy to min.-24°C and withstands short spells of temperatures dwn to -28°C.
