In today’s post, I feature Ember and Golden Conifer Winter Interests in Landscape. A video blog with a garden walk about the landscape and growing tips featuring these conifers Bren recommends.
Ember and Golden Conifer Winter Interests in Landscape
In today’s video, my little garden helpers and I take a walk around my house to see what colors are popping in the conifers. I think you will be shocked to see what is going on in the 2nd week of January in hardiness zone 5b Ohio. I’ve got spring plants putting on new growth and more. Things are getting a little wet with all the rain we are getting here in the black swamp. Be sure to watch the entire video so you can see Boo Kitty.

Conifers Up Close in The Video
There are two conifers I want to highlight on this blog post even though there are many that were mentioned. I would like to share a photo and a few more details below.
Golden Threads Cypress
This Golden Thread Cypress was added to my garden landscape once the driveway renovation was completed in the summer of 2019. Three of these drought loving shrubs were added to this corner landscape.
Ember Waves Western Abervitea
This Arborvitae is at the top of my list for color interest year-round. The beautiful wispy new growth on this shrub turns a pretty ember like rust color in the winter. During the summer when the heat kicks in the new growth is bright gold. The arborvitae is expected to grow 25 feet tall and 8 feet wide. This shrub has grown about 2 feet in the last three years.
Others Mentioned in Video
A few other conifers I grow really stand out in the landscape during this garden walk. I have listed them below and hope to share more details in the near future.
- American Arborvitae
- White Pine
- Eastern Hemlock
Shout out to the Wood County Soil and Water Conservation District which is having the annual tree seedling sale. The orders are due by the end of February so check out their website for details.
What do you think of the word conifer? I think I use it too much so let me know by commenting on this post or reaching out to me on @brenhaas social media. It was fun to show you what Ember and Golden conifers are doing in my home garden. Check back soon or connect on my website to be added to the newsletter.
I think conifers are really growing in popularity at the moment, having been unpopular-certainly in the UK – for a while
Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on conifers with me. I’ve been following conifers for sometime after falling in love with them at a local garden. I need to share a post featuring this gentleman – private garden – who loves to grow conifers. I hope to update my old video and share it on my site later this week. I’ve kind of made this a conifer weekend when I need to be in my dome gardening!
