The Golden Mop Threadleaf False Cypress is a great tree for the busy or new gardener. It gets right to work, bringing solid yellow and gold color to the garden and making a lovely mound of pendulous thread-like foliage without asking for anything in return. With a round and mounded shape, wider than it is tall, this plant always looks neat and trim and never needs attention to stay that way. Not only that, this beauty is hardy to minus 40, so even if you live in the coldest areas it is still a great choice.

In most gardens, it grows steadily to be around 3 feet tall, although it may eventually grow taller. It will become 4 – 5 feet wide, so it perfectly fills that space in a corner, at the top of a wall, along a driveway or beside a door. It will never become bare at the bottom or untidy at the top, but it will always look great, no matter the weather or the season. This evergreen is the perfect choice for any gardener, especially those who would rather enjoy their garden than work in it.

  • Neat mounded shape, broader than tall
  • Yellow to gold foliage brings a bold splash of color
  • Super winter-hardy to minus 40
  • Thrives in any sunny spot in any garden
  • Free of pests or diseases and deer resistant too

Choose a sunny location for your Golden Mop Threadleaf False Cypress, to develop the best yellow and gold colors, and almost any soil will suit it just fine, as long as it is not constantly dry. New gardeners often need plants to put around the house as foundation planting, and this is an ideal choice, filling the space but never growing too tall and blocking windows. It also does really well in planter boxes and even large pots, where it is a no-maintenance option to costly and time-consuming annual flowers.
