Relatively new to the trade, this columnar form of common juniper was selected for its bright golden yellow foliage in spring and summer. More vigorous than Compressa, this narrow plant offers wonderfully contrasting form and color for many types of gardens. 3-6" per year. This common juniper cultivar is an upright, narrow, columnar, evergreen shrub which features golden new growth foliage. Awl-shaped new growth foliage emerges bright gold in spring with good color retention throughout the summer and early fall. Golden foliage gradually fades to bluish-green in winter. A slow-growing shrub (3-6" per year) which typically reaches a size of 3-5' after 10 years. Gold Cone was introduced into commerce by Kordes Nursery of Bilsen, Germany in 1980.
