Nice to meet you, my name is Yellow Ribbon Arborvitae! I am best known for my compact and upright growing dense foliage which emerges orange before shifting to a bright green over the summer. In the fall, my foliage shifts from a bright green to a deep harvest gold, making me a great choice to help transition your garden's colors from summer to fall. I am low maintenance, only requiring pruning to trim back new growth of the current season or to remove any dieback. I am quite adaptable, and will thrive in any type of soil or pH, and tolerate some urban pollution. I am happiest, healthiest and most beautiful when I am given lots of sun to soak up throughout the day, and am planted in moist soil in a relatively sheltered location to protect me from drying winds.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water deeply and thoroughly once a week during the growing season. Make sure the soil is well-drained and doesn't stay soggy, as this can lead to root rot.
  • Maintenance: Yellow Ribbon Cedar is a low-maintenance plant. Remove any dead or damaged branches as needed.
  • Pruning: Prune in late winter or early spring before new growth appears to shape the plant, if necessary.
  • (Optional):Fertilizer: Yellow Ribbon Cedar does not typically require fertilization, but you can apply a slow-release, balanced fertilizer in early spring if desired.
