Morgan Oriental Arborvitae - Thuja orientalis 'Morgan'

Regular price $18.99

Or Thuja (syn. Platycladus) orientalis

This wonderful new slow growing Arborvitae has already charmed us. The summer color is a vibrant chartreuse green color that blushed a brilliant orange in the frigid temperatures in wintertime. You can see in the main photo that it is returning to that wonderful lime-green color in the spring when the weather warms up. 

Then in the fall, it will turn a purple color before it blushes back to that awesome orange. **NOTE that the winter's blush only happens in cold climates.
The narrow shape will grow into a gentle cone shape - a perfect anchor point for the miniature garden.
