The soft, bright golden-yellow foliage of Cupressus 'Goldcrest' 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 the depths of winter, the cooler temperatures give the trees a deeper, richer colouration, giving you added visual impact in your garden.
Also known as Monterey cypress, it's such a great all-round garden plant it has been awarded the coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit so you can be sure that it has been trialled and tested and declared garden worthy!
Growing to 3-5m tall in 10 years, Goldcrest is naturally upright and slightly ‘teardrop’ shaped but can be trimmed to suit your required height and makes perfect topiary. 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.
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 and protected from drying winds). It is completely winter hardy throughout the entire UK and is virtually pest and disease resistant too.
Supplied as 6 x plants in 9cm pots, ready for planting out into the desired location.
