Cupressus x leylandii 'Gold Rider'
Size: 5-6 feet
USDA Zone: 5-9
Exposure: full sun
Growing Conditions: moist, well-drained soils
Comments: Considered one of the best "golden" conifers. Not as fast growing as many other Leyland cypress. Dense, golden-yellow foliage can be used as a bright focal point or as a hedge.
