Plant details

Thuja plicata 'Rogersii' is a dwarf conifer that grows very slowly, not more than 5cm (2in) per year. It has bright gold foliage and makes a very good, dwarf conifer for a rock garden in full sun. Although it will eventually grow too big and need to be moved, it will make a stunning feature for many years. To propagate, take cuttings in late summer.
