Thuja HIGHLIGHTS® ‘Janed Gold’

Thuja HIGHLIGHTS® Janed Gold (‘Janed Gold’) is a tight, pyramidal-columnar form with shiny, bright gold foliage which gets more golden with sun and heat. Arising as a branch sport off the cultivar ‘Gelderland’ comes this fantastic brilliant gold Western Redcedar. In over 8 years of evaluation not one reversion has occurred. Thuja gets more golden with more sun and hot temperatures and holds the golden color in winter. Finally, what looks to be a fantastic substitute for ‘Goldconda’ and ‘Gold Rider’ Leyland cypress!
