Info

This Monterey Cypress selection from the United Kingdom has luscious, dense foliage, both lemon-colored and deliciously lemon-scented. Somewhat smaller than other forms, this one can reach 20' tall eventually, but is easily kept smaller and maintained as a large shrub by pruning or perhaps through hedging. Best in full sun in well-drained soil, these need little summer water once established. Frost hardy to 10F, USDA Zone 8.

Info

A dwarf golden form of Monterey Cypress that makes a bold focal point in gardens. To 12' tall and nearly as wide in 5 years it eventually develops a handsome spreading crown. Foliage emerges chartreuse before moving to a more vivid gold. Takes well to pruning. Possibly its best attribute is the amazing fragrance of the foliage, pure lemon with the slightest touch. Good in containers but protect containers from temperatures below 15?F, Monterey Cypress is hardy but it cannot handle frozen roots. Regular water to establish then very tolerant of dry conditions.
