Sometimes known as 'Galway Gold', this is a most attractive, golden foliage variant of Leyland cypress, which is more compact and slow-growing than the original green form. The colour is at its best in late spring when the new growth appears, but it keeps its gold hue well all year round. It makes a good plant for a hedge or screen, and can be clipped about three times per year to maintain the required size. If allowed to grow as a specimen plant it can eventually reach about 20m (65ft), which is around two-thirds the ultimate size of the green form. To propagate, take semi-ripe cuttings in late summer.
