Metasequoia glyptostoboides 'Gold Rush'

Golden Dawn Redwood

Intense, golden yellow, feathery foliage makes this striking, new cultivar easily recognizable. Metasequoia glyptostroboides ‘Gold Rush’ is deciduous and has the same handsome habit and horizontal branches as the species. Full sun produces best color, though partial shade is recommended in warmer summer climates. Known in Japan as ‘Ogon’, the tree was renamed by Dutch nurseryman Pieter Zwijnenburg Jr. before its introduction into European markets in 1993.
