Cupressus macrocarpa 'Coneybearii Aurea'

Weeping tree, sparsely branched, branchlets long and thin, whiplike, yellow. Most impressive as a large tree but the foliage tending to revert to green. This is possibly also sold and listed under the names 'Aurea Saligna', 'Coneybearii', 'Filipendula' (often described as a green form of 'Conybearii'), 'Pendula Aurea', 'Pendula' and 'Saligna Aurea'. Research is needed to ascertain whether this was raised from seed at Woolrich Nsy, Olinda, Victoria in 1920s and introduced by Hazelwood Bros, Epping, New South Wales, 1933. The original plant was probably purchased by a Dr Coneybear in the 1920s.
