About Forever Goldy Arborvitae

The Forever Goldy Arborvitae (Thuja plicata '4EVER' PP19267) is a brilliant upright evergreen that wants to bring a little sunshine into your landscape! It has gorgeous golden-yellow and emerald green foliage that is compact and evergreen throughout the year. This foliage is fanned and feathery, quite similar in texture to the very popular Emerald Green Arborvitae. It grows upright with a naturally pyramidal habit and reaches a moderate size of 10-12' H x 3-3.5' W at maturity.

Once established, this tree proves itself to be quite hardy. It's heat and drought tolerant and handles cold in stride as well.

This cultivar is perfect as a low-maintenance privacy screen, specimen, accent, or foundation planting. Furthermore, its dense foliage does a fantastic job of filtering out noise and pollution when planted in a tight row as a privacy planting.

Forever Goldy Arborvitae Care

  • This selection is hardy from USDA Zones 5-8.
  • It should be planted in Full Sun for ideal results.
  • Water your new plantings 2-3 times per week for the first growing season. After it's completely established in your landscape, it will prove itself to be notably water-wise.
  • It handles most soils as long as it has good drainage
  • Fertilize in spring with a slow-release, balanced fertilizer to promote new growth

How to Plant:

  1. First, dig a hole roughly three times the width of the root ball of your plant to make it easier for the roots to spread out.
    • Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with the ground around it. If you have slow-drainage, you can plant slightly above the ground level.
  2. Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil or composted manure to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth.
    • If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of pine bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of the soil.
  3. Put the plant in the hole and backfill around it with the soil mixture.
  4. Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture.
  5. Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated.

Spacing your Forever Goldy Arborvitae

For a seamless privacy planting, space your plants 2-2.5 feet apart. For notable space between plants, plant 4 feet or more apart.

    I see that this Arborvitae has a description video from Jim Putnam which is so cool because I watched a video of Jim's regarding PBM before I placed my order. I'd always ordered from a few select other places and was apprehensive. Jim's video showed the PBM facility and went through the process of how things are shipped and received. I was so impressed with my purchase of Forever Goldy. They both arrived in tact with the soil still moist. And the size I ordered fit the description upon arrival. They were just so vibrant and lovely! Impressive. You've earned a new customer PBM! Well done!
