Gold Rider Leyland Cypress - Cupressus leylandii 'Gold Rider'. Considered one of the best golden conifers. Its open, horizontal branching structure is covered with dense, bright gold-tipped needle-like sprays, contrasting with lime green interior foliage. A single plant makes a bright focal point in the garden, or plant en masse as an eye-catching hedge. Suitable for shearing to provide a more formal appearance. Best in well-drained soil. Upright grower to 35 ft. tall, 15 ft. wide.
