A British-bred form of the Monterey Cypress.
A British-bred form of the Monterey Cypress, raised by Treseder of Truro in the late 1940s, this spectacular conifer won the Award of Garden Merit in 2002.
Its yellow colour is so vivid that it provides wonderful contrast to a dark landscape.
A medium size tree, and therefore much smaller than the species, Goldcrest has a narrow, columnar habit and rich yellow, feathery foliage.
Certainly one of the best of its colour, it remains dense and compact.
Very good for avenues, gardens and parks.
It thrives on most soils.
Mature height: 10-15m
