Thuja occidentalis 'George Peabody'
Yellow conical arborvitae
Family: Cupressaceae

The Yellow conical arborvitae is a golden yellow, large, broad upright arborvitae height ranging 25-30 ft. and width 12-15 ft. It turns a deeper orange gold color in the winter. The bark is gray on the surface and a reddish-brown in the furrows, it has small cones about _ inch long with thin overlapping scales. This tree needs full sun and does well in moist drained soil. The Yellow conical arborvitae is a good accent to contrast with dark green conifers. This tree is good to use as an informal hedge, at entranceways, as a privacy screen or as a non-thorny barrier. Hardy Zones 2-8
