'Gold Strike'

Another of an apparent clutch of gold-leaved cultivars selected from the Floravista Gardens, British Columbia, in the 1980s. From descriptions in the literature there is little to separate some of these, and ‘Gold Cone’, ‘Gold Mound’ and ‘Gold Strike’ do all sound very alike, with little even in specialist literature to guide separation. (Auders & Spicer 2012; Hatch 2018–2020). In 1996 Jacobson noted that this was, at least in North America, ‘very rare, if not comercially extinct’ (Jacobson 1996).
