EVERGREEN PREMIER SELECTION
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Filifera Aureovariegata'
Variegated Thread Cypress is a very unusual Chamaecyparis ( false cypress ) variety that has very similar characteristics to its close cousin, Gold Thread Cypress. However, this particular thread cypress features very nice green colored threadlike foliage that is splashed throughout with a creamy yellow variegation. Has a very dense, mounding growth habit, and look absolutely stunning as it matures. Very, very hard to find in the nursery trade - I would consider this plant a "must have" for the avid collector of the unusual & hard to find.
Makes an excellent specimen planting, and looks really nice when grouped together in either mass plantings, or along borders. Have also seen this plant used along walkways, and along the fronts of businesses / buildings, where it is a real showstopper.
