Other Features:

Description: This is a very popular, globe-shaped shrub. Its new growth in the summer is a pinkish-gold, different from the ‘aurea’ forms of Chamaecyparis. The color attracts the eye from a great distance. A 10 year old plant, in ideal conditions, should reach a size of 3 feet in diameter and scarcely more than that in height (l gallon - 2 years old) (2 gallon - 3 years old). ‘Rheingold’ has proved to be one of the most popular of our semi-dwarf conifers.
