Special Attributes

The Gold Mop Cypress has to be one of the most eyecatching, attractive plants in existence! The stunning, shaggy, bright golden thread-like foliage and mounding pyramids of graceful cascading branches are sure to turn the heads of all who see it, year round!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to 6-8 feet tall and 5-6 feet wide in a pyramidal form with bright golden foliage, Gold Mop Cypress is ideal for use as an eyecatching, stand alone specimen in home foundation plantings and landscape borders. It also serves well in groupings or in straight or staggered rows to form a mid-size privacy hedge. It does okay in containers provided the container is well draining.  A natural fit for Asian themed gardens, conifer gardens, and Xeriscape gardens (Low Water Needs), 

Spacing:  5' for solid hedge; 10'+ for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Gold Mop Cypress is exceptionally hardy and easy to grow in most any type of soil and full sun to part shade. Foliage color will be more intense with more sun. Constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic. Do not over water this plant after planting. When established Gold Mop Cypress is exceptionally drought tolerant and would only need supplemental irrigation during prolonged period of dry weather. This plant is not a heavy feeder. Feed lightly in spring with a slow-release shrub and tree type fertilizer or a mild, organic plant food. No pruning required though can be sheared lightly for shaping purposes.

Nice plants
The plants appeared healthy and are adapting well. One was a little bent over because of the shipping but it has straightened up and is growing nicely.
