Special Attributes

One of the most eye-catching plants in our gardens, the Gold Mop Cypress displays stunning golden yellow foliage on shaggy, mounded pyramids that are sure to draw attention. If you've ever been to a nursery and seen this one growing in a 1 or 3 gallon size pot you might think it's a globe-shape plant that stays small. That's not the case. All grown up and with no pruning, the Gold Mop Cypress forms a pyramid that tops out at up to 8 feet tall and 5 to 6 feet wide, maybe even a little larger over time. That said, it does respond well to shearing so can be maintained at a smaller size or to a more formal shape.




Landscape & Garden Uses

With an upright habit and pyramidal form 6 to 8 feet tall and 5 to 6 feet wide at the base, Gold Mop Cypress is ideal for use as an exceptionally colorful and soft-textured focal point specimen in sunny to partially shaded home foundation plantings and landscape borders. It is also effective in small groupings or in straight or staggered rows to form a colorful, evergreen privacy hedge. It does okay in containers provided the container and the potting soil are well-drained. A fine addition to conifer gardens, yellow theme gardens, Asian theme gardens and the Xeriscape (low water needs). 

Suggested Spacing:  5 feet apart for solid hedge; 10 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Gold Mop Cypress is exceptionally hardy and easy to grow in a moist to somewhat dry but well-drained soil of average fertility and full sun to part shade. Foliage color is more intense with more sun. As with so many other ornamental plants, constantly soggy or wet soil is problematic. Avoid overwatering, providing only enough water to maintain a damp to moist soil. When established the Gold Mop Cypress is exceptionally drought tolerant and would only need supplemental irrigation during prolonged periods of dry weather. No pruning required to maintain its naturally dense, pyramidal form, though can be sheared lightly for a more formal look.
