Gold Rider Leyland Cypress
Cupressus leylandii 'Gold Rider'
Item #3164 USDA Hardiness Zone: 5 - 9
Considered one of the best golden conifers, this selection was found as a sport in the Netherlands. Its open, horizontal branching structure is covered with dense, bright gold-tipped needle-like sprays, contrasting with lime green interior foliage. A single plant makes a bright focal point in the garden, or plant en masse as an eye-catching hedge. Suitable for shearing to provide a more formal appearance. Best in well-drained soil.
