Metasequoia glyptostroboides ‘Golden Guusje’

Dawn Redwood

‘Golden Guusje’ is a cultivar of Metasequoia glyptostroboides that was selected in the Netherlands by Nelis Kools in 2000. While its ultimate size is not specified, it is presumably a full-size tree at maturity. This cultivar stands out for its golden-yellow foliage, which provides a striking contrast to the typical green color of the species.

Additionally, ‘Golden Guusje’ features dark, somewhat peeling bark, adding to its distinctive appearance (Auders & Spicer 2012).
