Plant details

This fine cultivar of Lawson cypress has a definite columnar shape which makes an ideal evergreen specimen tree and is also useful at screening. Its silvery green foliage looks a treat all year round but is especially valuable in the winter garden. Like all conifers, ensure young plants are kept well watered in dry spells until they establish.
