About Fire Chief™ Arborvitae (Thuja)

The phenomenal new Fire Chief Thuja from the Southern Living Plant Collection is the type of plant that leads people to ask “What is that plant?!” These exceptionally uniform shrubs make an almost perfect globe shape that requires no pruning. The Fire Chief’s eye-popping display of red-orange on the tips of its branches and lime-green on the inside appears almost other-worldly. As the wind shakes these shrubs, the orange tips appear to shimmer on top of the chartreuse green foliage underneath, creating an optical illusion type of effect. This Thuja is perfect for those looking for a year-round color interest, as its brilliantly golden spring foliage will transition to a deep scarlet red through fall and winter. Whether used as a border, accent, hedge, or mass planting in the landscape or container garden, the Fire Chief refuses to cease turning heads all year long.

    I purchased 4 of these and they were beautiful and healthy upon arrival. They’re doing great in their new home. I love the foliage amd would highly recommend this for a small evergreen with unique color.

  2. Patricia Burns (verified owner)

    Bought 2 Fire Chiefs to go in new bronze colored urns on front porch. Terrific gold, orangey-red foliage on new growth is outstanding, a real standout. Beautiful young plant, very healthy and well cared for by PBM. May order more.
