This 1984 introduction from Duncan and Davies Nursery in New Zealand is similar to Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana Aurea', but with a more open, informal appearance. In ten years, expect an 8' tall specimen with irregular branches of congested golden foliage. This dynamite specimen plant, eventually growing to 10' tall, holds the gold color all year.
