Cupressus Macrocarpa Goldcrest or Monterey Cypress Goldcrest
Cupressus Macrocarpa Goldcrest, to give it its full botanical name is a variety of Monterey Cypress. These evergreen trees are treasured for their narrowly columnar shape, decorative appearance and finely textured young foliage. This particular cultivar is best known for its bright golden yellow foliage that retains its vibrant colour all year round. Introduced to the United Kingdom in 1947 by Treseder Nurseries in Cornwall, the Monterey Cypress Goldcrest has been widely grown since then.

The foliage of this conifer grows in dense ascending sprays, its scale-like leaves borne on rounded stems. Apart from its naturally occurring chartreuse colour, the lush foliage is noted for having a lemon verbena scent when crushed. The Goldcrest cultivar produces small round cones once established.

Height and Spread of  Cupressus Macrocarpa Goldcrest
In 10 years, Monterey Cypress Goldcrest can grow to be 2.5 metres high with a 1.5 metre spread. Its ultimate height is around 12 metres, so make sure to account for its maximum size when choosing a location in the garden.

How Hardy Is  Cupressus Macrocarpa Goldcrest
A Californian native (named for Monterey County), this cultivar is fully hardy throughout the United Kingdom. For its reliable performance in the garden and marvelous features, Cupressus Macrocarpa Goldcrest was honored with the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by Royal Horticultural Society.

How To Use Cupressus Macrocarpa Goldcrest
Versatile and striking at the same time, this evergreen conifer will fit in wonderfully in any garden. Suitable for hedging and / or for evergreen screening, growing in containers or isolated planting, the Goldcrest cultivar lends itself well to various uses. Since its narrowly columnar natural shape and dense foliage make it a good choice for a hedge, this golden conifer can be used to introduce bold strokes of vivid colour to the landscape.

How To Care For Cupressus Macrocarpa Goldcrest
Generally undemanding, this variety needs to be planted in full sun to thrive. Choose a spot in the garden that is sheltered from cold, biting winds. It will grow in any soil, as long as it is well-drained. No pruning required unless it is used for hedging purposes, in which case trimming and shaping are encouraged.

Lush foliage and elegant form make this cultivar worthy addition to any landscape. Ideally suited for mass plantings, this Monterey variety looks equally striking when planted on its own. You may also be interested in Cupressus Macrocarpa Goldcrest Topiary.
