Cupressus macrocarpa 'Horizontalis Aurea'

('Aurea', 'Lambertiana Aurea') a golden variant of 'Horizontalis'. 'Aurea' is an illegitimate name used for a clone derived in Australia from a tree originally known as C. lambertiana 'Horizontalis' (see 'Horizontalis'). It is now correctly listed as C. macrocarpa 'Horizontalis Aurea', a large tree with widespreading tiered branches and widely grown as a windbreak, especially in country areas. The Australasian of June 16 1883 reports this cultivar as introduced by Charles Wyatt's Nursery, Geelong; it is not clear if the cultivar originated from this nursery.
