Thuja occidentalis 'Zmatlik'

Zmatlik Arborvitae

Thuja occidentalis ‘Zmatlik’ is medium green throughout spring and summer, but in winter, as temperatures fall, it puts on its winter coat of intense plum-bronze. The winter color is very dramatic and adds to the already interesting texture of this hardy narrow column. Small, scale-like sprays of foliage twist and curl creating a densely foliaged plant than can be enjoyed as a single specimen or planted as a screen. Found as a seedling by Mr. Zmatlik in the Czech Republic in 1984.
