Metasequoia glyptostroboides Gold Rush or the Dawn Redwood is a deciduous conifer tree that grows in a conical shape. Gold Rush has soft linear, feathery, fern like foliage that is distinctively golden yellow throughout the summer. Foliage will gradually turn orange / brown in the winter. Gold Rush is somewhat of a slower grower than most of the other redwood species but will eventually reach heights of over 15ft in 10 years to even taller maturing over time.
Gold Rush will tolerate wet soils, and some boggy sites as well. Awarded the RHS Garden of Merit Gold Rush is an ideal tree for gardens with its lovely yellow foliage – provided one has the space. Still it is a tree to consider.
Where to Plant
Plant in full sun for colour of the yellow foliage, soil moist, well-draining. Gold Rush will tolerate some wet , waterlogged soils and boggy conditions but area should drain. Prefers sand, clay, chalk and loam.
