Cupressocyparis Leylandii Gold Rider (Gold Rider Cypress, Leyland Goldrider)
Product Code: 2300
A fast growing conifer which has bright yellow leaves that hold their colour all year round.
The Gold Rider Cypress, named for its yellow/gold foliage is a common sight across the gardens of Britain. They require very little maintenance and can be left to grow on their own. However, if used for hedging, their dense leaves and branches will probably need to be trimmed each year to maintain the hedgerow’s smooth shape and tidy appearance (if desired).
All of our Hedging Plants allow you to style your garden in a range of different ways, not just because of their varied colours, but also because of the way you choose to trim and maintain them. Prune them regularly to achieve a neat, clean form, or let them bush-out a little to create a more natural appearance. Whether you’re using a hedge to give your garden some privacy, or as protection from the weather, road and noise pollution, you’ll want to choose a plant that complements the rest of your garden’s visual appearance. All of our Hedging Plants have evergreen foliage – giving you some pleasant greenery to look at all-year-round.
