Thuja occidentalis 'Rheingold'
Rheingold American Arborvitae

Under the category of "there's no way this cultivar could be related to its parent", Rheingold Arborvitae is one of the best examples, having prickly awl foliage of an amber-orange to chartreuse color with a rounded growth habit. Best growth and color occurs in full sun in well-drained soils, and the evergreen shrub may slowly grow beyond its intended size and spacial restrictions.
