Plant Information

Fast growing dense, columnar acid green/gold tree to 9′ tall and 2′ wide in 7 years. Average, well-drained soil. Do not plant this in rich amended soil, it will grow rapidly and rank and likely tip over in the first windstorm of the autumn. Instead rely on its adaptation to poorer soils to create sturdy, measured growth. You’ll thank yourself in the end. Foliage can be burned by strong subfreezing wind- plant this out of the path of east wind. It recovers quickly in Spring, and you’d never know there was winter burn by about May. The foliage has an intense lemon fragrance. Great in containers. Little to no summer water. Moderate deer resistance- they won’t eat it but they may rut on it.

Biome: Deer Resistance, Hot Aspects, Low Water/No Water, Oregon Coast, Western Native
USDA Hardiness zone: Zn7b 10º to 5ºF
Foliage color: Chartreuse/Gold
Foliage season: Evergreen
