Spread: 6 feet
Hardiness Zone: 4a
Other Names: Japanese Falsecypress, Sawara Falsecypress
A cultivar of threadleaf falsecypress with fine, almost string-like golden foliage all season long, giving an extremely fine texture; an extremely dwarf variety, ideal for color and texture detail in the garden
Sungold Falsecypress has attractive gold foliage. The threadlike leaves are highly ornamental and turn yellow in fall. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.
Sungold Falsecypress is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a distinctive and refined pyramidal form. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which can make it a great accent feature on this basis alone.
This is a relatively low maintenance shrub. When pruning is necessary, it is recommended to only trim back the new growth of the current season, other than to remove any dieback
