Thuja occidentalis 'Golden Globe'

Overall Description

A very nice, round, globe shape that doesn't get out of control. The foliage is very dense, and a beautiful golden yellow color on the outside of the plant - nice bright green in the interior section. A great, carefree choice for accent plantings, when planted close together makes a nice medium sized hedge/border. Very pretty plant that will brighten up any landscape. Coloration will darken / bronze just a bit during winter weather, but still very, very attractive. Becoming increasingly popular with each & every season.

--Fertilization / Feeding : For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend POOPeas for use with all of our 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.
