CHAMAECYPARIS pisifera ‘Sungold’

Cypress, False Japanese –

0251 Represented in gardens primarily by three large groups of cultivars, Sawara falsecypress is a hardy evergreen conifer native to Japan. The clasping scale-like leaves and lacy cascading tassel-like branchlets of ‘Sungold’ mark it as a member of the Filifera Group. Similar to but more sun tolerant than C. pisifera ‘Filifera Aurea’, it slowly forms an arching, rounded, medium-sized shrub. The pea-sized spherical cones appear only on mature specimens.

This cultivar thrives in light shade and moist, slightly acid, organic-rich, well-drained soil. Its foliage may scorch in hot sun. It prefers cool humid environments and should be protected from harsh drying winds. Use this colorful and textural shrub in the mixed border or foundation planting, as an individual specimen, or in combination with other small to medium shrubs such as heaths and heathers.
