White Cedar

A compact evergreen that shouts for attention but demands very little maintenance.

Thuja occidentalis 'Mirjam' forms a neat rounded globe, eventually to 90cm across, ideal for adding year round structure to the garden. The feathery foliage is carried in upright 'fans', with green leaves to the heart that are tinged a lovely golden yellow at the tips. In the winter the leaves take on shades of bronze and burnt orange adding valuable winter interest at a time when there is little other colour in the rest of the garden. This is a fairly new variety, bred in 2014, and the striking yellow foliage makes it difficult to miss. 'Mirjam' makes a lovely specimen plant and combines well with others in a rock garden, gravel garden or in a pot.  It needs virtually no maintenance and will be happily left to slowly grow towards its mature size over approx. 10 years.

The golden yellow foliage, winter bronze tones and compact size of Thuja 'Mirjam' prove that good things come in small packages.

Plant Care & Advice

Thuja 'Mirjam' is best planted in full sun and would look great at the front of beds and borders, in raised beds, rock and gravel gardens, and also in pots and containers.

Grow in South, East or West aspects to maximise the sun and shelter from cold, drying winter winds that can occasionally scorch young foliage. It will grow well in most soils as long as they are well drained and in a pot a loam-based compost should be used for longevity.

In its first planting season and when grown in a pot, water regularly and feed occasionally, once established in the ground then no further care should be required. Pruning is not necessary and this small conifer will happily grow away with very little fuss.
