Gold Mop Cypress
Chamaecyparis pisifera  'Gold Mop'

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!

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. USDA Zones: 5a-10b  Find Your Zone >

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.
