Ha, and I thought that it was very dead Thuja orientalis.
Is this one this color year round? I only know the evergreen species. Interesting.

Changes colour three times - spring growth bright yellowish, summer colour more yellow gold, and winter colour deep goldy bronze as in this pic.

Thanks for the info Bluespruce. How old is this one and how tall do they grow?

This is the original plant and is now ten years old, it's around 60cms tall at present, so mu guess would be around 100cms tall in 20 years.
