Fire Chief™ Arborvitae

Thuja occidentalis 'Congabe' PP19009

Distinctive color shifts set Fire Chief apart among compact evergreens. Bright gold foliage brightens the tidy globe-shaped shrub in spring. Summertime brings gentle hues of orange to the fine foliage, which deepens to red in autumn. The rounded shrub remains compact without pruning and resists sun and wind burn.
