Lemon Burst™ Arborvitae is moderately sized with broadly conical form and tight habit. This evergreen thrives in warm climates, does equally well in cold climates, and is resistant to Passalora/Cercospora needle blight. Yellow new growth keeps its color even when grown in full sun. In cool climates during winter, the foliage takes on lovely orange tones. Lemon Burst™ was bred by Dr. John Ruter at the University of Georgia.
