The Leylandii Cypress ‘Castlewellan Gold’

Is a popular cultivar of the Leyland Cypress (x Cupressocyparis leylandii) tree. It is known for its striking golden-yellow foliage, which adds a bright and vibrant touch to any landscape. Here are some key features and information about this cultivar:

Appearance: ‘Castlewellan Gold’ is an evergreen tree with a dense, conical shape. It typically grows tall and narrow, reaching heights of 15 to 30 meters (50 to 100 feet) with a spread of 4 to 6 meters (12 to 20 feet). The golden-yellow foliage retains its color throughout the year, making it an attractive addition to gardens and landscapes.

Growth Rate: This cultivar is known for its fast growth rate, gaining approximately 75 to 90 centimeters (30 to 36 inches) per year under optimal conditions. It can quickly form a tall hedge or screen, providing privacy and shelter.

Sunlight and Soil Requirements: ‘Castlewellan Gold’ prefers full sun to partial shade for optimal growth and foliage coloration. It can tolerate a wide range of soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils, as long as the soil is well-drained. However, it may not thrive in extremely wet or waterlogged conditions.

Maintenance: Regular pruning is essential to maintain the desired size and shape of ‘Castlewellan Gold.’ It is recommended to prune in late winter or early spring before new growth emerges. Trimming the sides and top of the tree will help to promote denser foliage and a compact form. It is also important to water the tree during dry periods, especially during its establishment phase.

Uses: Due to its tall and dense growth habit, ‘Castlewellan Gold’ is often used as a hedging plant or screen to provide privacy and windbreaks. It can also be grown as a specimen tree in larger landscapes or as an accent plant in smaller gardens.

Considerations: When planting ‘Castlewellan Gold,’ it is important to consider its potential height and spread. Make sure to give it enough space to grow without interfering with nearby structures or plants. Additionally, the Leyland Cypress family, including ‘Castlewellan Gold,’ is susceptible to several diseases, such as root rot and canker, which can impact the tree’s health. Proper care, including regular monitoring and appropriate watering, can help prevent these issues.
