Introduced to Britain in 2000, this is a stunning selection of Metasequoia with fantastic, soft golden-yellow foliage all summer. A deciduous tree, the golden leaves turn an attractive orange-bronze colour before falling in autumn.

Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Goldrush' is a little less vigorous then the classic species and grows to be a striking tree with a narrow, upright habit, ideal for gardens or woodland.
