5-gallon + pots ranging in price from $69.99 to $450.00 The Amber Gold Arborvitae is a beautiful upright cold-hardy evergreen with brilliant golden foliage and dense growth, even when young. The bright yellow new branches slowly darken over summer and pass-through winter a beautiful amber orange. It doesn’t burn in winter or summer, as so many golden conifers do, and its dense growth means clipping isn’t even needed. Reaching 15 feet in about 10 years, and only 3 feet wide, it will continue to grow steadily taller, but never become a monster. Grow it as a striking specimen among shrubs or other evergreens, or plant it in a pot for your terrace or patio. It is perfect beside the door, alone or in groups on the lawn, or as a brilliant hedge.
