Thuja orientalis 'Franky Boy' (Large Plant)

Platycladus orientalis 'Franky Boy', Oriental Thuja

Hardy Shrub

With unusual foliage, looking like upward growing coarse yellow-green strands, Thuja orientalis 'Franky Boy' makes an interesting specimen plant in the garden. Forming a rounded pear shape, this hardy evergreen conifer can turn to a bronze/orange colour during winter before flushing back to green again in spring. A low maintenance plant, only needing pruning if you wish to make its shape more formal, Oriental Thuja will happily grow in full sun or partial shade, slow growing and also suitable for containers, this versatile plant will certainly be worth adding to your garden. Height: 120cm (47". Spread 75cm (30").
