x Cupressocyparis Castlewellan is an extremely vigorous conifer with flattened sprays of golden young foliage. Hedges of Gold Leylandii are ideal for reducing noise and screening out ugly eyesores. These plants cope very well with exposed, windy and coastal conditions. To keep a good compact hedge and to save upsetting any neighbours, we advice trimming at least twice a year.
All of our Gold Leylandii plants are supplied container grown suitable for planting all year round.
