  1. Dax - May 01, 2011
    Illinois (Hardiness Zone: 5)

    An outstanding Thuja selection found as a sport on Thuja occidentalis 'Rheingold'. For an immediate splash of color, Thuja occidentalis cultivars are great and are care-free when it comes to maintenance. They grow in almost any soil that drains, ranging from the deep south to the coldest climates of the North. Best Regards!

  2. Brian - Aug 29, 2011
    Oklahoma (Hardiness Zone: 7)

    Although rated for full sun, reports in the south have lead me to believe evening shade would be best.

    Great plants, great packaging, & timely!
