King's Gold Cypress
Chamaecyparis pisifera  'King's Gold'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 4a-9b  Find Your Zone



Special Attributes

The smaller size, improved heat and sun tolerance, and its ability to maintain bright, eye-catching color throughout the year have given 'King's Gold' the edge over other similar cypress. The King's Gold Cypress is a mounding evergreen shrub with thread-like, bright golden-yellow foliage attached to graceful arching branches. Every landscape needs, and will appreciate one of these stunning beauties!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing moderately in a pyramidal shape 4 to 5 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide at the base, King's Gold Cypress is ideal for use as an eye-catching 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:  3 to 4 feet apart for solid hedge; 8 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

King's Gold 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 King's Gold 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.
