Chamaecyparis Pisifera 'Golden Mop'

 

Gold Mop Cypress has beautiful golden thread leaf foliage that hangs and drapes like the threads on the head of a mop on this charming shrub. The vibrant golden color which adorns this beauty slowly fades into a golden-green color for the fall. The Golden Mop Cypress is deer resistant, drought tolerant, loves the sun, and is very easy to take care of. This mounded shape shrub works great as an accent plant making it a great fit to be used as foundation plantings, or as a specimen, but this unique plant works the best when planted with rocks and boulders as the bowing foliage can be used to create a stunning cascading waterfall effect.

Gold Mop can be used as a large hedging plant, it looks best when mixed with other large green foliage plants like a Holly. Make sure to plant in full sun always.
