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 a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
