Synonyms / alternative names
Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘Sulphureum’

This cultivar, developed by the Belgian Bultinck Nursery before 1999, is a relatively slow-growing, upright, pyramidal plant. Its young foliage is lemon-yellow, later turning grey-green during the winter months. Initially named ‘Sulphurea’ (‘Sulphureum’), the cultivar was renamed because Latin-form cultivar names are considered valid only if published before 1959 (Auders & Spicer 2012). A specimen at Abbeywood Gardens in Cheshire, UK, planted in 2006, had reached a height of 2.5 m by 2012 (Tree Register 2024).
