    Does anyone know the shade tolerance for Thuja Occidentalis "Globosa Aurea"? I show one source says that Thuja Occidentalis is somewhat tolerant to shade, another says Globosa Aurea Variety needs full sun.. any ideas??:confused:

    Thank you

    Globe Arborvitae seems to do pretty well for me in part shade conditions. Full shade and it starts to get stragly.

    grassman, i have 18 at 1 account, 9 in 60% shade and the other 9 in 20% shade, the 9 in full shade, i installed last year, they aredoing well and added a few inches in growth during the year so far. foilage is a darker green due to the extreme shade but look mighty inpressive
