Introducing the

‘Gold Rider’ Leyland Cypress

x Cupressocyparis leylandii ‘ Gold Rider’

 "Hedged" and Natural Gold Rider Cypress at our River Growing Fields

 

    ‘Gold Rider’ Leyland Cypress is a variety that will mature at about half the size of the "regular" Leyland Cypress.  ‘Gold Rider ‘ Cypress has beautiful golden foliage that makes a stunning hedge or stand-alone specimen tree. The yellow color is concentrated at the branch tips, that  gives a “two-toned” effect with the green interior foliage.  We have noted that the trees are more colorful the more sunlight they receive, so they are more colorful in summer than in winter--they lose much of their yellow color in winter--and so we recommend planting them in full-sun locations.

    Like the Excelsa Cedar, these trees are bigger than the "Emerald Green" Arborvitae -both wider and taller, and much faster-growing.  These trees are not as fast-growing as the standard "Leyland Cypress"

     

ATTRIBUTES      

Foliage:   Evergreen               

Mature Height:    To 35 ft.          Please note that this is an estimate              

Mature Width:     To 15 ft.          Please note that this is an estimate 

Sunlight:   Full sun.  Anything less than full sun and the trees may not produce the yellow color.

Soil:  Must be well-drained; won't tolerate "wet feet".  Drought tolerant once established. OK in acid soil, alkaline soil.      

Growth Rate:  Moderate.

"Instant Privacy" Use:  A great alternative to a green privacy screen.

"Instant Privacy" Spacing:  These trees can be spaced on 5, 6, or 8' centers (meaning the trunks of each tree are 4', 6', or 8' apart) or wider.  Some people want them even closer than that in order to maximize the “Instant Privacy", while others will put them wider in order to cut down on the cost.

What to Expect the First Year:  As with all newly-planted trees, these need to be watered carefully through the first Spring/Summer--see our "Care of Your Trees" section for more details.  Not as much growth the first year because the tree is putting its efforts into its root system.  Some small branches that were broken during installation will turn brown (cut them off or just leave them and they will fall off).  As noted above, they can lose some of their color in the winter.      

Comments:  Columnar to conical  growth habit. Holds color well throughout the year.  There is a lot of green in most Northwest yards--why not add some stunning color?

"I am really pleased with your work.  You saved me several thousand dollars, steered me away from trees that wouldn't work, provided healthy and beautiful trees, did a great job planting them, and did everything on time and on schedule.  You can quote me."                                                                          Jo, Vashon Island

"Our privacy bank of trees has done nothing but grow well into maturity.  Our back yard and deck area is totally private and the 10 trees your team planted [in 2005] are rich, leathery and dark green.  We remark on them every day it seems.  Please include me in any of your "Testimonials" as you would be hard pressed to find a more satisfied customer."                                                                                                                  Jim, Port Orchard

"For quality vs. value, your trees are the best landscape purchase I’ve ever made."    Jeff, Seattle

"Michael, I just wanted to pass along a note to tell you how thrilled I am with the trees.  The effect they have brought to our new courtyard in the front of our home here in Seattle has exceeded my expectations!"                                                                Chip Hanauer, Hydroplane Driver--Click Here to see his project.  

"I work in customer service so I know good service when I experience it and you have my top rating.  I would definitely recommend you to anyone who needs new landscaping.  Thanks again.”               Carol, Camano Island

"The [new] trees were a great privacy feature when we sold the last house!  We now have a much larger space we want to talk with you about . . "                                                                                   Katherine, Fall City

“My compliments to your crew.  We’ve had a lot of contractors working on our house recently and we’ve seen the entire range; and your guys were excellent. The trees make things look so much better—I started smiling as soon as I saw them going in."                                                                                    Holly, Queen Anne

"You guys are the best nursery I've ever done business with! And I have dealt with a few. You did what you said you would, on time with attention to detail rarely found. From the beginning of the quote process all the way through to the last detail you made it easy. And you work to ensure that the trees will thrive after planting with detailed advice, a complementary irrigation system, and a website filled with useful information. Most nurseries will just dump off the goods and tell you best of luck, put some water on them. You provide a quality product that sets you apart. Your crew was friendly, polite and operated as a well organized team. I would recommend you without hesitation! Thanks for doing a great job!”                                                                                                   Ryan, Buckley

"We can not believe how beautiful your trees are.  The privacy is unbelievable. If you ever need a testimonial let us know.   Our yard is perfect!  We sit there and say "my oh my”!               Suzanne, Tacoma 

"I don't think I've ever been as happy with something I've purchased."                           Sarah, Sammamish
