This superb 1977 English introduction from D.F. Wyant of Bedforshire was discovered as a golden sport on C. 'Hagerstown Grey'. The bright golden foliage that retains its color all year makes for a much slower growing plant than its parent... to 6-8' tall in 10 years. In hot climates, a bit of afternoon shade and a moist but well drained soil will help keep the plant for scorching.
