This is the first time i see this cultivar. it is very interesting. What are it's characteristics?

Tanja, a selected seedling from Thuja (Platycladus) orientalis 'Elegantissima'. golden thread-like foliage, needs to be cut back a little each year otherwise it tends to become a bit untidy, will be 90cms x 50cms after ten years if trimmed back.

Lori - It's a very recent introduction, so not too sure what it's mature shape will be.
