(syn: C.o. 'Verdonii') This 1966 introduction from England's Rogers Nursery is a seedling from C.o. 'Nana Gracilis' and sports twisty golden cockscomb like foliage on a pyramidal shaped form. The growth rate is about half way between C.o. 'Aurea Nana' and C.o. 'Nana Lutea' (expect 5' of height in 10 years). C. o. 'Verdon' is a great specimen plant for winter interest in the garden.
