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.
