Left to its own devices, this conifer makes a fair-sized rich golden tree, but it is normally used for hedging where the height is controlled by regular clipping. It is particularly good for this purpose as not only does it withstand regular cutting, twice-yearly is usually enough once the hedge is established, but its deep gold colour and slight gloss makes it especially attractive as a year-round framework to the garden. Unlike many conifers, it can safely be cut back into old wood to rejuvenate it if necessary do this shortly after the start of the growing season, one side per year. To propagate, take cuttings in late summer. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM) in recognition of its outstanding excellence.
