Gold Rush Dawn Redwood

Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Gold Rush'

SKU
03616
This fast-growing, pyramidal conifer has soft fern-like gold foliage that tends to not burn in full sun. In spring, the needles emerge nearly chartreuse-yellow, hold their color well into summer, then turn orange brown in fall before dropping. Deeply fissured bark provides winter interest. Makes a fine hardy specimen tree. Deciduous.

Water deeply and regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
