Thuja Orientalis 'Berckman's Gold'

Overall Description

A semi-dwarf arborvitae with light greenish-yellow, fernlike vertical sprays which are all tipped in yellow-gold. Semi globose to oval growth habit with very profuse cone production. Very little bronzing in the winter makes this arb a very good choice for a medium to large size hedge or border plant when planted approx. 3ft apart. Very popular variety - especially well suited for the heat & humidity of the south & southeast.

Fertilization / Feeding: For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend POOPeas for use with all of evergreen species. However, either water soluble ( Miracle Gro, or equivalent ), or granular fertilizers ( Holly Tone is excellent ) are also good options. Most any granular fertilizers with a 6-12-12, or 10-10-10 ratio are also acceptable. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. POOPeas
may be used at anytime.
