Thuja Occidentalis Jantar (Amber Gold Arborvitae)
A bushy and highly-textured conifer that develops an orangey-glow in the winter.
The Amber Gold Arborvitae has more horizontal branches than most conifers, which gives its foliage thicker density and texture. Their cheerful yellow-green colour holds through the spring and summer, before warming to an orangey-amber, or as they say in Poland “Jantar”. A perfect focal point for a rockery, large container or border arrangement. They also make a good choice as hedging plants, as they are very easy to manage.
All conifers are known for their hardiness and resilience against the elements. We often think of them being heavily covered with snow during the winter, but they can look equally as bold and impressive against a bright blue summer sky. Conifers get their name from the “cones” that they produce – which come in all shapes and sizes. Conifer leaves are evergreen and will either be needle-shaped or scale-like.
