Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Kelleriis Gold' / Kelleriis Gold Lawson cypress

Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Kelleriis Gold' is narrowly conical selection of Lawson cypress with dull yellow foliage. It is considered by many to be the most cold-hardy of all golden selections of this species. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 4 feet (1.3 m) tall and 2 feet (60 cm) wide, suggesting an annual growth rate of 4 to 6 inches (10 - 15 cm).

This cultivar originated as a seedling selected in 1938 by D.T. Poulsen Nursery, Kelleriis, Denmark.
