Cupressocyparis Leylandii Castlewellan Gold - Golden Leyland Cypress 1-1.2m

Cupressocyparis Leylandii Castlewellan Gold is an evergreen conifer with light green foliage which is golden through the spring and summer turning slightly darker in the winter months. This variety of Golden Leyland Cypress is slower growing than the green type and therefor makes a good choice for hedging and screening in gardens. This tree is suited to all but waterlogged soils and copes well in the urban environment giving a great barrier both visually and to noise.

These trees can reach 15m when mature but annual trimming will easily keep them in check. The golden colour is stronger in sunny sites.
