Cupressus macrocarpa 'Lutea'

Described as golden in the first year only and with yellow cones. Large, mature specimens at Melbourne's Botanic Gardens labelled as this cultivar have pale lime-green foliage but the cones are not yellow. It is possible that some reversion has occurred on aging specimens. Dickson's Nsy, Chester, UK in the 1890s.
