Gold Mop Cypress
Chamaecyparis pisifera  'Gold Mop'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 4a-8b  Find Your Zone

Special Attributes

The Gold Mop Cypress has to be one of the most eyecatching, attractive plants in existence! The stunning, shaggy, bright yellow 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 moderately in a pyramidal shape 6 to 8 feet tall and 5 to 6 feet wide at the base, Gold Mop Cypress is ideal for use as an eyecatching, focal point specimen in 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 natural fit for Asian themed gardens, conifer gardens, yellow theme color gardens, and the Xeriscape (low water needs). 

Spacing:  5' for solid hedge; 12' or more for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

Gold Mop Cypress is exceptionally hardy and easy to grow in most any well-drained soil of average fertility and full sun to light 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 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.
