Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Filifera Aurea'

Chamaecyparis pisifera (Golden Mop Japanese Falsecypress)

Golden Mop Japanese Falsecypress

This plant tolerates some drought and a little salt and will grow in dry soil.
Suitable soil is well-drained/loamy, sandy or clay.
The pH preference is an acidic to slightly alkaline (less than 6.8 to 7.7) soil. Gold Mop Cypress should be grown in full sun to partial shade on moist, well-drained soil. It tolerates alkaline soil poorly. Regions of the country with moderate to high humidity are best for this plant. Although moderately drought tolerant, it is not especially happy in very hot summers unless provided with some irrigation. This can be partially compensated for by providing a large mulched area preferably out to the edge of the canopy. Locate the plant properly away from walks and patios to eliminate the need for pruning
