Gold Rush Dawn Redwood met-a-se-KWOY-a glip-to-stro-BOY-dez
- Deciduous conifer, tree, grows somewhat slower than the species, bright yellow foliage in spring and
retains much of the color throughout the summer; in autumn needles turn an orange-brown before they fall.
- Sun. Easy to transplant, performs best in moist, well-drained, slightly acid soils
- Hardy to USDA Zone 5 Apparently discovered as a seeding in Japan and named
'Golden Ogi' and also possibly 'Ogin'. Later it was brought to Europe by the Dutch nurseryman
Pieter Zwijnenburg Jr. and renamed 'Gold Rush' (not 'Miss Grace' as sometimes written).
