Cupressus nootkatensis [V1]

Alaskan cypress variegated sport
Cupressus nootkatensis variegated sport

We found this colorful sport on a Alaska cypress (Cupressus nootkatensis) in the forest up by White Pass, Washington. When we returned to harvest the sport, and after digging it out from underneath several feet of snow, we found that the variegated branch was much shorter because the trees along the road had been trimmed! But Paulie Seidel of the Crowfoot Nursery was able to root a few cuttings of this new, yet unnamed, cultivar.
