Yvonne Port Orford Cedar - The Guardian® Series

Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Yvonne'

SKU
03380
Flattened sprays of golden-yellow tipped green foliage in fall and winter add bright contrast to the landscape. This outstanding selection is 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 over the last two decades. Makes an excellent informal hedge or accent plant in a shrub border. Evergreen.
