Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

A dwarf Japanese conifer noted for its extreme hardiness and finely textured yellow foliage which, unlike similar varieties, is resistant to sun scorch. Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Sungold' forms a soft, spreading dome of very fine, thread-like foliage on weeping branches. The scaly leaves emerge golden-yellow in spring maturing to lime-green. Its lacy foliage and cushion-like form delivers all-year-round texture, shape and colour to rock gardens, containers and borders. RHS Award of Garden Merit. Height 1m (3ft) x Spread 1.5m (4.5ft) in 10 years.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow Cypress trees in moist, well drained soil. Chamaecyparis prefers a neutral or acid soil but does tolerate chalky soils well. Choose a position in full sun.
Once established, Cypress trees require virtually no maintenance. When grown as a hedge, prune Chamaecyparis at any time between late spring and early autumn, taking care not to prune into older wood.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
