Why Berckman's Gold Arborvitae?

Increasingly popular and rightfully so, Berckman’s Gold Arborvitae is everything you want in an evergreen - with some added flair. Its manageable size, paired with engaging color and texture, ad adds interest to any landscape. Woody gardeners and plant-lovers alike will want to clear a space for this Arborvitae.  

Berckman’s Gold Arborvitae is aptly named for its light green-yellow coloration, with tips fading into a gold sheen. When mature, the branches hold a medium to fine texture. The Berckman’s Gold features a neat, oval habit, which suits its profuse cone production. Cones begin in a blue-white color, and ripen to rich mahogany.

This Gold Arborvitae is classified as a semi-dwarf species, making it perfect for smaller landscapes. A hardy grower, your Berckman’s Gold Arborvitae won't be susceptible to browning in the winter. They make an excellent hedge, and as a border plant, they can be trimmed to form a striking, pleasant-looking barrier. It's well-suited for southern heat and humidity, with a moderate growth rate. 

Rich in color, cone production, and lush foliage, the Berckman’s Gold Arborvitae is an ideal accent to add to your landscape. It stands out from the more typical evergreen species as a showy border plant.

    Nice trees

    I am very pleased with the trees and the condition of the trees when they arrived. They look very healthy. We are looking forward to the addition to our yard now and as they continue to grow.

    Great trees

    Planted 16 in April in not very good Arkansas soil. Then nursed them through 4 months of drought before it rained and the trees really responded and grew beyond expectations. Now they are 28” to 30” high , healthy and beautiful without a single fatality . I would highly recommend these really unique looking trees , can’t wait until spring to watch them prosper and thrive on my acreage.

    Nice little trees

    The trees look nice. We ordered a 5 pack and they have been in for about a week now. Hopefully they all survive and thrive. I definitely was not expecting the 20 trees we purchased to come in boxes wrapped up like they were, but I do suppose that is how they can ship so many trees so far so fast.
