Product Information

For highly impactful specimen plantings in beds, borders and  patio pots, the Golden Scented Cypress is a must!

The soft, bright golden-yellow foliage will provide your garden with healthy colour all year round and (in keeping with its name) gives off a fresh, lemon scent when foliage is crushed or cut - which is said to deter biting insects from that area of your garden. In fact it is such a great all round garden plant it has been awarded the coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit!

Growing to 2-3m tall, It is naturally upright and slightly ‘teardrop’ shaped, but can be trimmed to suit your required height.  A ‘little and often’ approach to trimming of the young, soft shoots will allow you to easily keep it to the shape and size that suits you. It is very easy to manage and can be kept in post on the patio for many years, where it will happily sit at centre stage of your displays. Once it has reached the desired height and width, prune the new growth in early summer and mid-autumn each year. A hedge trimmer will leave the perfect finish.

Golden Scented Cypress will grow in virtually any soil and in any location from full sun to partial shade (although for the brightest of golden-yellow colour it is best in full sun). It is completely winter hardy throughout the entire UK and is virtually pest and disease resistant too. In the depths of winter the cooler temperatures give the trees an even deeper, richer colouration.
