Golden King Port Orford Cedar - The Guardian® Series
Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Golden King'
A robust new evergreen Conifer with bright gold-tipped foliage on broad, cascading branches. Grown on Guardian® root stock, an exceptional under-stock developed by Oregon State University which is resistant to Phytophthora lateralis, a disease that has caused the demise of many Chamaecyparis lawsonianas. We use this rootstock on several varieties: 'Blue Surprise', 'Silberstar', 'Silver Queen' and 'Yvonne'. Young rounded form becomes pyramidal with age. Use as a specimen, or mass to create an informal screen or windbreak.
