Cedrus deodara 'Gold Cascade' / Gold Cascade Himalayan cedar

Cedrus deodara 'Gold Cascade' is dwarf selection of Himalayan Cedar with pendulous branching and golden foliage. Plants develop a compact conical shape as they approach maturity, and will resemble a smaller version of C. deodara 'Aurea'. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 4 to 5 feet tall (1.3 - 1.6 m), an annual growth rate of 4 to 6 inches (12 - 15 cm).

This cultivar originated in the early 1990s in Australia. The originator is unknown.
