Oh, thanks, Julien, for posting this photo.
Does the foliage change colour again in the springtime ?

Does it have a longer name to include the variety ?

Thuja occidentalis ............... ?

What height is this at the moment ?

... so many questions ... :o)

I will try and find the label for this plant for you i recently brought this in the sales, however i have worked with these thuja over the years and its really how big you want them to grow, not as fast as the other conifers, the foliage is like you see at the base of the picture and once the new foliage comes through then this takes on the lovely colour in the autumn/winter, i trim very carefully so as to not give it an obvious clipped effect, so that it still looks like its natural state, i do this aprox every two years, hope this helps. the height of the one in the picture at the moment is aprox two feet and have put this in a large planter.
