Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Gold Rush' 12L

Product Code: 193365
£69.99
  • Common name: Golden Dawn Redwood tree
  • Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Goldrush' has light, feathery, golden yellow foliage throughout the summer before turning orange and bronze in the autumn. ‘Goldrush’ is deciduous, with the dark mahogany brown, rough, fibrous bark providing interest in winter
  • This Golden Dawn Redwood had an upright, pyramidal form and is slightly slower growing than the straightforward Dawn Dedwood, reaching 8 x 4 metres in 20 years. 'Goldrush' is the perfect tree for moist, boggy or waterlogged sites in a sunny or partially shaded spot. With the RHS Award of Garden Merit, this is a lovely tree for yellow foliage if you have the space
  • Requires a moist, well-drained site but is suited to most soil types. Metasequoia Goldrush trees do not require a lot of pruning. Simply remove any dead, diseased or awkwardly placed branches as and when you see them
  • Height and spread in 20 years: 8 x 4 metres
  • If you’re planting Dawn Redwood in spring, summer or dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. Make sure to keep an eye on young trees and increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little. We also stock a range of irrigation kits, suitable for a variety of planting schemes
