    Possibly Cedrus deodara Gold Cascade?

    Yes that could be it, thank you.

    Although the leaves are not as 'spikey' as shown on some of the pictures I've been looking at on the net.

    Could it be a dwarf Chamaecyparis?  I was looking at C.filifera aurea nana...

    I think if it's a Cedrus, it would have little bunches of "needles" - from your photo it looks more like flat, branched leaflets.  image

    Loads of different dwarf conifers though...

    Liriodendron

    Thanks for that, I think you are right, it is some form of Chamaecyparis as you say.

    Chamaecyparis obtusa Crippsii is very golden and quite droopy looking.
